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.
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 I get that, some of it is tender points for fibro and some of it is caused by the fibro but I’d suggest going to see a chiropractor. I was in 10/10 pain and crippled, saw them and despite the fibro they discovered that my bone alignment and muscles were compensating from a shift in alignment, I’m not pretty pain free except in a flare or when the muscles are healing from adjustments and workouts. I can’t recommend them enough because I had all those pains and more and as soon as they started adjusting me, they went. I used to suffer horrendous migraines everyday, haven’t had one in months.
