is it possible to get Tietze syndrome from leaning onto your ribs?
The first time was about a month ago and I leaned my right rib side into a wooden railing . All of a sudden I felt a pop and tremendous pain ((lower rib area). THe pain lessened that night but got worse over the next two days. The pain was horrible but went away after two weeks.
A month after this incident I had tried to get out of the pool by leaning onto the concrete (done this many times ). ALl of a sudden that same popping felt and intense pain again- this time I leaned onto the right side. .
Both times I went to the ER and the first time they did an xray - they diagnosed it as a bruised rib bone or possible hairline fracture because it was too early to see anything small on the xray. THis week when I went they didnt even do an xray they just DX rib fracture again more pain meds .
Today when I was bending over I felt somethng similar but without the pop and the pain is so much worse.
TO me I cant understand why this keeps happening to me when I am doing things I have always done.
It doesnt make sense to me to have two rib injuries less than a month apart.
I am 46 female and work out daily.
Thank you for your help in advance
