Hi, I have a pain in my side on my rib for just over 2 weeks, the pain is quite painful but wouldn't class it as severe. I would say the pain is coming from the lower left ribs On the left side of my body. I went to A&E on Sunday because of the pain, they performed and ECG, Blood Tests, Blood Pressure & Chest X Ray which came back fine, the doctor diagnosed me with an intercostal muscle strain. On Tuesday the pain increased so I went to my doctor who diagnosed me with Costochondritis and prescribed me Co Codamol for the pain. I still worry this could be something else like pancreatitis , do you think that this is possible with all the tests I have had? is it normal to have to have this amount of pain just from a muscle/cartilage?
thanks in advance
