    as in your lungs or tightness as in feeling like someone is squeezing the life out of you?

    if you ar meaning like feeling squeezed to death and pain, yes, i get that, and have from time to time since getting FM. it's something awful.

    look up chostocondritis. it is very common in FM. it is when the muscles in the ribs and chest bone tighten up, and cause pain

    when they are tight, and your back muscles are tight, it can feel like you are literally being crushed, very painful.

    sorry you are suffering, i wish we could all have some relief.<3

    I have costochroinditis too and although I don't have this pain everyday when I do it just
    adds to the misery of my other Fibro pain.

    Hope you find some relief, Susan
