Costochondritis.. Or something else?

Postby Chelle39 » Mon Feb 24, 2014 9:58 am

I've had this before but it was in my front sternum ... However now I am having terrible pain in my lower back rib cage that's not seeming to go away... Does Costochondritis affect this area too? Does anyone have experience of it there? I'm loathed to go back to the docs just yet as not long since my FM dx and I don't want them to think I'm being a pain in the bum. I guess in the back of my mind I'm just worried this could be something else (recent liver issues have now been resolved)

It is best to get checked out as a precaution.

I am a costo sufferer and my pain radiates from the front chest wall all around the rib cage to my back and it even pulls on the neck and shoulders.
