Pectus Carinatum

Pectus Carinatum

Not exactly related to fibro but does anyone else on here have pectus carinatum? Trying to figure out if that’s what’s making my upper back and chest hurt constantly. Everything else has been ruled out.

My husband is being treated for this type of problem. Has something to do with his Rhomboid nerve. Google it and see what you think 🤔

I have the pain in middle of my back between my shoulder blades chest ect daily just some days if I've done anything too physical strenuous bending lifting reaching ect it's much worse. I was a self employed domestic cleaner bit had to give up work altogether now as my job only inflamed things more and got unbearable! Still have it daily but can pace myself now I'm not working!

Thank you for you answers, I really do appreciate it. For the pain you feel between shoulder blades, for you personally and anyone else that sees this that has that specific pain? Does it just last a little while or for days or never ending?

Mine isn't always tender to touch in fact because I had a hard physical job I find the more bending lifting reaching ect I do get burning pain and tightness in my chest. Took a while to get to the bottom of it as in like I said I had heart scans ect plus I'm a asthma sufferer so at first put the breathlessness down to that until I began to have tightness and burning feeling which I suppose if costochondritis is an inflammation of the cartlidge around the ribs and breastbone then obviously explains the burning and tightness! Hope you get to the bottom of it and sorted! 👍

Does it have to be tender to touch to be costochondritis? Because I usually don’t have the tenderness, just the burning pain, tightness feeling.
