International ME/CFS and FM Awareness Day Is On May 12, 2018
Thomas Hennessy, Jr., selected May 12th to be our international awareness day back in 1992. He knew that May 12th had also been the birthday of Florence Nightingale. She was the English army nurse who helped to found the Red Cross as well as the first school of nursing in the world.

    The last few weeks the left side of my back hurts with every breath or if i stretch my left arm to the side, the deeper I breath the more it hurts. It hurts all my back if I lay on a hard surface. I.e floor. Anyone else because this is new. It feels like my ribs at the back.

    Does it feel like it wraps around your rib cage? Or pain is at the bottom of your ribs, on the side? I have that feeling on the right side, and for years thought it was something with my gallbladder - even had an ultrasound, which was negative - but turned out to be a radiculopathy in my back. I just rarely feel it in my back, almost always feel it on my sides.

    It was diagnosed with an emg (don't really recommend that test...), and had it for years before being diagnosed, so hope yours is different cause...JAH
