Is your toilet seat a pain in the...& affecting your pain?

Does anyone else have chest pains on a regular basis?

I have had pains for the past two years. Its on both sides of my chest but primarily left and middle. It occurs many times daily and always freaks me out even though I have seen my doctor many times and had many tests run. All of which always come out negative for any heart issues. I also have pains in my back and at my elbow and knee joints. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in August 2018. Basically because they ruled out everything else.
