If you are experiencing chaotic breathing episodes and suffer from fibromyalgia you are not alone. More than 50% of FMS sufferers say that they have trouble breathing due to pain in the ribcage and chest areas. This pain can feel like a stabbing in the chest with every breath and can cause patients to take very small, rapid breaths, using only the small muscles of their chests. While deep abdominal breathing has a calming effect on an individual, shallow, disordered breathing makes people feel tense and anxious, which could worsen your fibromyalgia pain.
