I have had that severe chest pain. Before I knew I had Fibro they called it costochrondritis (basically inflammation there). I took Aleve and used ice a lot and it cleared up after a couple weeks. Once in a while I will get it again especially after exercising too much. Good you got everything checked, though I know it’s not really comforting when they tell you nothing is wrong and your body is screaming that something is. I agree that a physical therapist can really help a lot too. Really sorry you’re going through that. :/
Maybe see if you can be referred to a rheumatologist, at least maybe he will diagnose you properly and give you something to help!! I definitely get the pain in my armpits and all around that area at the front!
Yes the center of my chest feels bruised and my ribs as well as my legs.
Well they are wrong and right. The number one offender for a fibromyalgia flare is stress. I would demand to be referred. If they wont go above the doctors head their boss. Or report them. Doctors are supposed to be here to help us. They dont need to be working if they can't follow their oath they took when they became doctors. Took me 5 years to get a diagnosis. Dont give up.
