    i have definitely had the rib times it feels like (this sounds very weird but..) my ribs are dried out twigs and will break if anyone were to squeeze me..just a weird ache..I do not know how to describe it...I use a heating pad and that helps a bit as well as Advil.. My shoulders ache if I lay on my side a lot..which I cant control while im again with the heat and advil..a physical therapist friend recommended I drink more water as dehydration makes aches worse...hope you are reassured..I know it helps to know I am not alone!

    Oh yes my dear. I'm going through this now. I think it's GI related especially the under the rib cage pain. It could also be costochondritis which is inflammation of the cartilage surrounding the ribs. It is very common in women especially during menopause. Hope you feel better soon
