Pain - Chronic rib pain

Posted by Anonymous-afa05a2b in About Kids & Teens, Jul 26, 2013

Ok, so I have been experiencing intense and very sharp rib pain, on both sides, and chest pain from time to time, for just over a year in the half... however I should stress the rib pain is constant! I have had so many tests, because they know something is up - I've had a lot of relapses where I am bed bound with pain. I am only 17... and it's having such an affect. I was wondering if anyone else has this same issue... has any answers! Running out of ideas what to do 🙁

If it were me, and if you haven't already tried this, I'd use a combination of Biofreeze, an all-natural, drug-free topical pain reliving gel or spray, and a rib belt such as those seen here:

If that doesn't do it, I'd see an orthopedist.

Do you have pain in any of your joints, back, hips ?? I have Ankylosing Spondylitis which causes rib and chest pain. It was diagnosed by a rheumatologist following many incorrect diagnosis
