Does anyone experience really bad rib pain? It’s on both sides for me. This is a new symptom and I don’t know if it’s my endometriosis, Fibromyalgia, or something else entirely.

      I have been experiencing this for a while. Used to happen here or there, if I over exerted maybe one day. Now its been excruciating, daily for almost a month now. I'm waiting to get into pain management so I have no answers as of yet but I have fibro and EDS

      I don't think it's fibro or endo. You probably sprained/bruised them, lifting something or stretching too much

      I have experienced a feeling like having a bruise all along my bottom rib on one side for a few years and have recently been diagnosed with fibro. For a while I wondered if it was my bra causing it but over lockdown and beyond I stopped wearing a bra for 2 years and it stuck around.

      I get this really badly, currently in a hot Epsom salt bath to try and ease it. It also feels like my diaphragm is constantly cramping and making it difficult to breathe. Frustratingly, I also have endometriosis & fibromyalgia so can't help determine the cause. I do know that diaphragmatic endometriosis is more common than they think though! Hope something helps! I may also have something called fibrous dysplasia though which could be causing rib pain & fractures 😅 Recommend some magnesium tablets in case it's referred pain from diaphragm or intercostal muscles, a bath or a heat pack. 😞 I hope it eases up for you!

      I get a sharp pain in my ribs sometimes and have Fibromyalgia.

Yes, some people with fibromyalgia experience severe rib pain. It can be hard to breathe due to the pain and may also cause knots in the muscles all over the body. However, it's important to consult a doctor to determine the exact cause of your rib pain, as it could be related to endometriosis or another condition.
