went to the Mayo Clinic today and the Dr diagnosed me with Fibro. I thought I had it for some time but wasn't sure. The thing I have the most problem with is that my chest feels so tight like I can't get a good breath or that something is crushing me. When I lay down, I get headaches and feel so tight I can't breath. My left arm hurts and my hand gets tingly. Are these all symptoms of Fibro? I've had my heart check three times - EKG's, Stress tests, Echo - the works, and they all say my heart is fine. (three different ER's and 3 different Drs) The Dr said my lungs are clear but I still feel like I can't breath. Is this Fibro? I feel scared because I feel like it's my heart but every Dr I've seen says it's not. I can't go to the ER everytime I get like this. Sometimes it feels like my heart flutters or doesn't beat right. And my ribs and shoulders hurt really bad today too.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Oh, the Dr wants me to get some physical therepy. Has anyone had any help with Fibro by having this?

Thanks, Celia
