    Has anyone experienced any rib pain. Started on one side and in the front near sternum. Now in front on other side. Can an injury trigger the fibro? I play golf when I can and was wondering if I strained it first and now the fibro has kicked in.

    My Ribs have hurt for at least 20 years, I still cannot stand my husband placing his hand on my ribs, especially while sleeping. I had an abusive ex in the past that would work on my ribs, jamming his fingers between them. I always thought it came frome that, but now hmm?

    Even those who don't have FM or something else, injure their ribs, pulled or overworked muscles, torn ligaments. All from the twisting and turning of the game. It usually takes about a week or two to completely heal, so if it lasts longer see a doctor.
