Answer

Want to be seen by your doctor to rule out liver, stomach , pancreatic and spleen causes. In most cases of fibro, if mid upper abdomen it most often turns out to be indigestion (which can cause tenderness in the muscles over the lower chestbone, which through a reflex arc can also worsen acid reflux, or rib muscle/cartilage pain (costochondritis) or tender muscles where the abdomnal muscles attach to the bottom of the lowest rib on either side. (right or left abdomen or mid back).
