I am a new fibro sufferer and was told I had it in July 2010... I have costochondritis and psoriatic arthritis. I am in alot of pain in my fore arms, shoulders, sides, back and now my chest, does anyone else get pain in their chest wall with fibro !?


  • Yep and they are caused by trigger points in the chest area. I use a lacross ball up against the wall to work out those stubborn trigger points there and on my low back. I bought a wonderful book on self trigger point release and any time I have pain I look it up and it shows all the trigger points that can cause the pain and work on them. I also have a theracane used specifially for working on trigger points, but I like either a tennis ball or a lacrosse ball the best. It is amazing how much it helps.
