    Last night as I laid in the bed I was feeling two of my tender points that are below my breast on my bottom ribs kind of. I have one on each side, well any ways I was feeling them and it seems that on both sides there is a small knot right where my tender points are. Its about the size of a marble maybe alittle smaller. Do any of you have these knots?
    Thanks

    I have these TP's here, too. I felt under and around them, and I am very skinny, and I felt only bone! and "fibrous"-like tissue...I wonder if these small marble-things you are feeling are maybe where the Myofascia is thickened to CAUSE the TP's...

    I don't know Fibro, I am new to all of this so I don't know what that is to be honest, I know alittle bit about mycoplasma since I have been on here but never the term you used. I am not at all skinny lol as you can see by my picture on my profile I am pretty healthy lol. So sometimes us big girls have lumps here and there to begin with but where these are is just so sore I can barely even touch them where as my other tender points I can apply some pressure before I can feel the sharp pain but these are so sensitive just to barely even touch. So I am gonna bump this again and see if anyone has had this. Thanks for your responses!!
