In this video from invisible i, Katy talks about some of the symptoms and other conditions commonly associated with fibromyalgia.
Fibromyalgia is known as a chronic pain condition but there are many other symptoms caused by the disease which are not related to muscle pain. In this film, Katy concentrates on a condition called “costochondritis.” She explains that costochondritis causes chest pain and breathlessness and is an inflammation of the ribcage. Sometimes patients can also experience pain in their backs and abdomens.
Katy says that she has been suffering from costochondritis for about eight years, long before she was actually diagnosed with fibromyalgia.
