I was diagnosed with Fribro a few months ago after many tests and years of pain.
Lately I've been getting pain in my middle back - just below my bra line. (all along the T4 - T7 area I think) When I use my arms - as in cooking, cleaning, reaching for things, driving etc - it causes the pain to be worse and I get tightness in my chest. I used to think I was having some kind of heart problem but the Drs all say it's not my heart (I've seen several Drs for this)
The back Dr I went to said the back pain is from the Fibro. Does anyone else have the pain in that area? I've had MRI and xrays of my back and it shows my discs are fine.
When it hurts, it also feels swollen and tight. It hurts to lay down and to sit back against a chair.
Also, when I walk, my legs feel heavy like they're full of lead. My right foot is tingly sometimes too. And when I walk, my shoulders feel like they have bricks on them and I get tired out easy.
I've had lots of tests and all the Drs say Fibro.
I have to go for physical therapy for my back.
Anyone else do physical therapy and have the pain in that area and did it help? Any suggestions on what to do for pain?
One other thing, I have GERD, and fatty liver. Anyone have this and can give me suggestions on what to eat or not eat?
Thanks for any help
