Rib cage rotation with pain inside lung?! Help!!!

Posted , 2 users are following.

I have been suffering with my upper back for 3 years now, been to number of doctors etc and finally went to a good physio yesterday and I have mild scoliosis and my rib cage has rotated, I am in constant pain but what worries me the most is that I have pain on the left side which feels like it's inside my lung and is worst when exhaling deeply, just wondered if anyone else with rib cage rotation felt the same?! Please help

    Hello Zoe

    Have you had an MRI ?. Perhaps that would identify the problem.

    Last week I had an MRI and found that I have spinal stenosis. That's what

    my physio has been saying all along. Best of luck, hope you find a cure.
