    I know that Shortness of breath and extreme fatigue are all part of the Fibro.. but mine has been getting worse the last few days. I am totally exhausted ...

    Went to the grocery store this morning, and thought I was going to faint from the exhaustion.... I've been told if you can push on your chest and experience pain that its NOT your HEART...

    I had an echo/ stress test done 16 months ago and everything was fine.... I have been under a lot of stress in the last 5 months.. I lost my Mom and my husband has had a heart attack and two stints... I'm sure most of the exhaustion is from that.

    If I didn't know I had Fibro, I would think I was having a heart attack because the pain goes down the outside of my left arm.. the pain isn't exactly pain, but more like muscle ache and when I touch my chest or upper body I about go through the roof.

    anyone relate.... I see my rheumy on Friday.
