hi all. I was a part of the FMS community, but for various reasons decided to try out the pastures over in chronic pain land. My legs are generally my worst area as I have FMS and OA in my knees. They will just ache all the way to the bone from the hib to the feet. However, I have had pains in my ribs since I was in junior high. Recently, they have become really bad. Sometimes they are very tender and I cant stand to be touched our to have any constrictive clothing on. Other times they are sharp stabbing, tearing kind of pains. The strangest thing is the insane pressure I feel. It is as if my organs have expanded and are trying to push my ribs from the inside out. Can anyone give me any thoughts or ideas? Heat give some comfort, but OTC and vicodin have done nothing. I have a call in to my doctor, but due to some insurance issues it would be easier if I didn't have to go in right now. Thanks so much and I hope I will get to know you all soon.
