@A MyFibroTeam Member. i am glad you went to get checked. I know it is frusterating but safer to be sure. Now you know it is probably chondritis. There is no cure for it but ask your doctor for muscle relaxers and higher dose ibuprofen. That is what i do when i have a flare up of anything that is from inflamation. I hope you feel better soon.

It very well could be condritis but since yiu are short of breath please get checked out. It is better to go than end up having a heart issue. Please keep us informed.

God bless you. Shortness of breath is a serious symptom. Get checked out to be safe.

I am having that exact tightness! I don’t have the “can’t catch my breath” issue. Just a lot of nausea. I have been to all the docs and just recently to the Mayo Clinic. Apparently I am healthy. I follow up with my family doctor this week.
