In brief: No

Fibromyalgia is widespread pain meaning pain on both sides of the body above and below the waist including the spine.
Pain in just the ribs is not fibromyalgia.

In brief: No

Fibromyalgia causes muscle pain in multiple muscle groups, not an isolated chest wall (rib) pain.
You should go see your health care provider.
