    I have it, too.
    How many times did I see my GP for that... and saying that it was very painful.
    I thought my hormones were out of whack or I was wearing my bra too tight? LOL

    Here's a video about Perrin's lymphatic drainage technique. I've seen him for an assessment and am thinking of trying the treatment. He emphasises it's not by any means a cure, but has helped some people.

    You have to prepared for feeling worse at the start, and since I'm not too bad at the moment I don't want to do it right now.

    Several on this board have tried it with varying success.

    I worked out over the weekend with much torso rotation and that spot is hurting and tender upon pressure again. While it is a milder symptom than most of the crap that comes with CFS, it is incredibly annoying and nagging. It's exactly on the spot Boule de feu sent in the picture but on the left side for me. It's like the ribs/cartilage is tangled/pressed together/inflamed there and I would give quite something to see a Perrin guy just to massage this away - if this is possible at all. What is weird is that when I had my onset in 2009 I had pain from the chest infection right on that spot, but it was stabbing and acute at that time. I asked doctors whether the infection could have left scar tissue damage and they are always vague about it and don't care much. Another thing to try for people that have it mainly one sided is to become ambidextrous as it takes pressure away from your dominant (my left) side. Easier said than done, though, requires patience and training. I have met some martial arts people that had similar chronic injuries (without cfs though) and they started training on their other side until they were truly ambidextrous and it seemed to have helped a lot. cheers

    Mine is at 2:00 position. It hurts a little for a few minutes after I press it. I've been doing the massages in Dr. Perrin's book for lymph drainage, I'll have to see if it makes any difference. Sometimes I get chest pains on left side, too, that could be from lymph nodes there, I think he said that in his book, too, I can't remember for sure if that's where I read it.
