My costo is so different to other people's that i'm constantly convinced it isn't that and it's something more sinister.
Mine is around my lower left ribs. For the last 18 months they have stuck out and feel like they are swollen. They would feel bruised if i pressed them quite hard. They ache around the bottom and around the side.
The most swollen part is around the middle of the left lower ribs. Not around the middle of my chest, but the middle of the left ribs themselves, which is where i believe there is a costo joint. It gets more swollen as the day goes on so is much more prominent at the end of the day. And i feel the ribs on that side feel harder than the ones on the right. Thats a weird thing to say because it's bone but they do feel so hard when i press them.
i have had ultrasounds, x rays, ct scans, and a nuclear bone scan which showed inflammation in the area, so i know it wont be anything more worrying, but still i worry because the symptoms are not the same as everyone else's. i OBSESS over it. i check how it feels maybe 10/20 times a day. i convince myself it's something terminal. ARGH.
