im 54 female and have arthritis in my full spine but for months had this chronic rib cage pain that would affect the upper back and both sides but never the front, it would last 2 hours after I got up from a nights sleep. I have now had it constantly all day and night making it difficult to stand sit and generally move around, it feels like someone is crushing my rib cage. My gp has now provided me with morphine tablets to take alongside my oramorph and said she believes it's coming from my thoracic spine area. Seeing neurologist next month.
Ive read about costa chondrites and it sounds similar but I don't get any pain around the front at all. Any advice greatly appreciated.
