    I think I have read briefly on this site about this left hand under rib pain being connected somehow with FM.
    Is this true? I have had a feeling of something rubbing against my left rib for about two weeks now, and its getting a bit sore and annoying now. Went to the doctors this morning, she seems to think it could be connected with heart burn etc. Does anybody else suffer from this symptom, I would love to hear from them.

    God Bless

    Hello Angx,
    I started with a sharp pain on my left side where my ribs are located and also across to my left side. I hear a clicking sound if I touch my side or left rib cage. It is just annoying. I have not went to the doctors as of yet for this but it does have me concerned.

    not all the time but enough. My doctor said it's Myofascial pain. Mine is nearly always both sides in
    the front and clear across my back.
    Feels like I have a steel clamp being
    tightened when it's real bad. I found a stretchy brace and I put it on as
    tight as I can comfortably, sometimes
    I cinch it pretty tight. You'd think
    the pain that feels like it's already
    squeezing you would be hurt by a tight brace, but it really helps me!
    Also the PK5 topical cream helps me.
    Hugs, Bambi
