I just found this site and cannot believe that so many people have the same pain and symptoms as me ! I have been having rib pain for over a year now, this gets bad when I wear a bra, I have gotten to the stage now where I only wear a bra when really needed !! I am so sick and tired of this, I have had the usual xrays, muscle relaxants and anti inflammatorys prescribed, ct scan for lungs, accupunture, physcial therapy, massage, I've tried everything, finally last December I had a MRI, I requested it as I just had enough ! It showed a small bulging dish at T5 T6, so I'm guessing this is where it's all coming from ! Now what do I do? Can anybody tell me if this eventually goes away ? I have flare ups from time to time with a burning pain between my shoulder blades the creeps round my rib cage, I would take lower back pain any day, this is just so uncomfortable and tiring and seems to worsen with stress !! Did anyone here find a solution ? I just want to get on with my life !!
