Costochondritis in Fibromyalig | The Body Principle

There is a symptom of Fibromyalgia (FM) that is rarely talked about, yet is very prevalent among sufferers and quite scary at the first onset.  It is called Costochondritis.

it is the cartilage between the ribs and the chest bone becoming inflamed and sore.  You will probably find it hard to move your upper body without the sharp pain in your chest.

Costochondritis affects about 70% of FM sufferers.  The pain can last for days or even months, and can reappear at anytime.

  • sharp, stabbing pain in the front of the chest
  • ribs that are sore to the touch
  • pain on the left or right side of the chest
  • upper chest pains
  • burning pain in the ribs
  • pain that radiates up the back of the neck and shoulders
  • pain in your chest when you sneeze or cough
  • pain that increases with activity, exertion, or deep breathing
  • pain that decreases with rest, movement, or slow breathing
