Re: Back & Chest Muscles Ache Terribly, Is this Fibro?
I would be more tempted to guess chronic muscle strain in your back especially from pain with movement, and chest pain can refer from the back pain.
However you can have a heart issue causing chest pain referring pain into your back.
Have you had an MRI on the back pain? Any treatment?
Fibromyalgia does not have to be diagnosed by tender points. It can be diagnosed also by excluding all other conditions and based on the symptoms you have. Well a rhematologist would argue with diagnosing it that way but primary care doctors do dx it like that.
I do not suffer leg pain either and I have been diagnosed with FMS.
