  • It could be costochondritis which is a condition in patients with fibromyalgia and is quite painful. Arthritis is as well. Make sure if the pain lasts more than a week check with your physician. It could indicate a different problem. Hope you feel better.

  • I just looked that up and it sounds like what I have. I've been to 5 gastro Dr who don't know what it is. Been to 3 hospitals and nothing. VERY FRUSTRATING
