Oh my god, I have an extra rib (cervical rib!)
I am one of the 1 in 200 people who have an extra rib. I just found out about, how do doctors and chiropractors miss something like this... I have been suffering for 5 years with neck and back pain.. yesterday I had a back scan for the first time when the chiro discovered the nasty rib!
so for 25 years I never knew this, anyone just had a similiar shocker like this?
I was asked by someone how the hell do you not realise that you have an extra rib.. well how does a person know!
To all the sufferers with this problem, take good care of yourself. In two weeks when I am through this pain (I am going to chiro 3 times a week !) I have to start exercising... perhaps a blessing in disquise becaus I am 7 kg overweight..
take careReport this
