Is there a link between MS and costochondritis?

Sometime ago, on these threads, I read about a possible link between MS and costochondritis. Unfortunately, I have been unable to find anything else concerning this and was wondering if anyone out there had any further information about this. I was diagnosed with costochondritis while in the military back in 1989 and was then diagnosed with MS in 1999 - after having left the military.

Any information would be appreciated.

If you look on the Fibromyalgia board or do a search they talk about this alot. I'm not sure if it's directly linked to MS or Fibro, but I hear it more often on that board. You should check it out.

I myself have been on that board less and less because even though I'm awaiting an MS dx, I already have a Fibro dx, but I don't have alot of the symptoms. Mostly just the fatigue and some pain.

Bella...In response to your post regarding Fibromyalgia, I have heard that having Fibro. is a red flag for some other disease, like Lupus and MS and is probably more of a symptom of them. Has anyone else heard this?
