Do many of you Fibro sufferers have sever rib pain. I get it so bad sometimes that it’s hard to breathe with the pain. I also have knots in my muscles all over my body that are extremely painful. My husband sometimes rubs them out until they release (if I can handle the pain king enough) and that gives me the most relief. My doc just says to deal with it.

      Backnobber for knots on back.

      Recommend trying sliding cupping Silicone cups, light suction. Cheap and easy to try. Available from anazon. Plenty of youtube tutorials.

      I can definitely relate to this. For me it’s always my left rib.. it’s the weirdest thing ever. I sometimes feel like something is pressing up against it or something but it hurts a lot. I was laughing about something the other day and I heard something POP .. that just made the pain worse

      I can relate, and it's incredibly frustrating. I wish that our doctors could feel the pain we go through on a daily basis so they could understand how intense it is.

        @Raquel226 I couldn’t agree with you more!

        @Raquel226 I’d be happy to just *bonk* one of these days so they start to understand 😂

      I have them in my floating ribs usually and I have yet to figure out what to do- breathing is impossible and oddly if I bend over when it happens I can’t get back up? So I kind of go rigid and stand obnoxiously straight 🤣

        @cinnabunni yikes that sounds bad. I get it on all ribs but my floating rib will get displaced sometimes.

          @MNVikingfan Same here, sometimes from coughing/sneezing or rapid movement, is it the same with you?
