Stinging Pain on Rib Cage

Posted , 9 users are following.

Hi all, does anyone get a stinging burning pain on their ribcage I went to the doctor and had it checked out she seems to think its muscle pain on the right ribcage when I have it I also have the sensation of being able to feel every rib on that side. Everyday something new I've had this on and off now for about 6 months and wondered if it might be nerve pain as heat doesn't help it but ice does.

    Hi

    I'm not glad that you're having rib problems but so glad it's not just me. My rib pains occur one side or both sides sometimes front sometimes back sometimes side I've noticed tonight that they're quite tender and a little hard to the touch I am

    un diagnosed as yet as my gp is less than useless. I've bought some of the fsh kits online going to do these on my next monthly whenever that arrives haha and am speaking to the really nice nurse practitioner on Thursday to discuss all symptoms and hopefully get some answers

    Hope you feel better soon xxx

      I am so sorry you are having to deal with all this too but happy that I am not alone ...my are usually on the right side but I get a light touch of it on the left sometimes as well it goes right around the ribcage all along the edge of the ribs and in between them too ...frustrating ...I read about costochondritis which is an inflammation of the rib cartilege and it sounds just like this ...ice works for me ...I also have tons of gas under my ribcage as well ...hope you get some answers please keep us updated

      I hate to say it, but my gp is also a waste of my time and money. I am going to talk to the NP at my GYN office more next time I go. She is more my age and at least listens

    I wonder if the pain you are describing is the same pain I have in the kidney area? And I do have in the front also, but always along the bottom of my ribs. I don't have pain between my ribs. Hmmm
