Hey, for about a month or two, I have been having troubles breathing just through simple tasks like walking around or walking up and down my stairs. It also takes a while to regain my breath and calm down again. I tried working out and getting back into shape, trying to see if that was the problem, but it's not. For a couple weeks, I was exercising and only made the breathing troubles worse. Other times, I will get this sharp pain right underneath my breast. It varies on what side it will be on. I'm always achy and I deal with headaches and migraines 24/7. I don't remember the last time I didn't have a headache. I haven't really talked to my parents about it becuase they put it out as a joke. The times I actually have been to the doctor's, they diagnosed me with fibromyalgia and arthritis in the legs. They also said anxiety, but that doesn't take place if you do physical work. I was taking Gabopentin (not sure if I spelt that correctly) but it was only making things worse, making me wonder, "Do I really have fibro or is it something worse?" By the way, I'm a sixteen year old girl if that means anything.

  • Have you only visited your regular physician or have you seen specialists? I have fibromyalgia, too & there are many symptoms associated with FM, that you don't mention. I'm not sure why your parents would think it is a joke. With the chest pain & SOB, they should be taking you to a cardiologist for a thorough exam & tests. Migraines can be relieved by getting deep nerve root injections from a neurologist. Talk to your parents. It's your health, take care of it & be proactive in your care.
