    It's most likely Costochondritis, inflammation of the rib cage. It's how my Fibromyalgia first started and the flare ups' are intense. Rowing, lifting pulling all make it worse.

    Yes absolutely, prior to being diagnosed with FM and after, I had consistent chest pains with numerous visits to ER and hospital admissions. Nothing physically wrong with my heart or ECG'S, I was diagnosed. HOWEVER BY CHANCE I NOTED MY BLOOD TESTS, my red blood cell count was 5 and should be at least about 12, after a blood plasma transfusion and taking iron and magnesium supplements, the chest pain, headaches and dizziness subsided. Always keep an eye on your blood tests your self kero copies and look to see for any irregular results doctors sometimes don't pick up. My iron tests slowly reduced, and no notice was taken of this.
    If I did not see it, it could have resulted in a heart attack, "with a perfectly normal heart".

    Yes I do and at one point on a daily basis, together with dizzyness, headaces and fatigue. After I found out I had very low red blood cells - iron, I was given blood plasma intravenously and afterwards iron, magnesium and phosphorus supplement, with in a month my red blood count went from 5 (dangerously low which can cause a hear attack) to 12 (which is normal).
    My symptoms improved dramatically. Just for peace of mind check out you blood count.
