rib pain

Postby groovy_chick » Sun Mar 22, 2009 8:35 am

Hiya,

does anyone get rib pain at all :( ? My lower ribs on the right side are killing me, they feel like they have been bruised and can barely touch them. Also the intercostal muscles around them hurt. They don't look bruised but are very tender to touch, as far as I know I haven't injured my ribs but they bl**dy hurt!!!!Not sure if it's costochondritis as my breast bone doesn't hurt just these lower ribs. Anyone???

Yes me.. I don't get costo as it's never the upper ribs always the lower ones that aren't joined on and like you it feels really bruised almost like someone has hit me with a hammer. It usually lasts a few days then vanishes... no signs of bruising. I think it's the intercostal muscles playing up due to the FM, whatever it is it's not nice and really tender.

Oh dear :( we are a right bunch aren't we?!
Do anti-inflammatories help at all for this? This rib pain is new to me, had all sorts of pain everywhere else but not ribs yet, guess that's something new to add to my inventory of pain SIGH!!!

:) I get it too, on the right side - have only just been diagnosed and have had the rib thing for a couple of years, thought it was to do with the oesophagitis... another thing to add to the list!

Hope you all having the best day possible

It's the left side with me, most of my FM symptoms are worse on the left though.

lol most of mine are on the left side too apart from this rib pain :( physio said to try heat pack on it. Don't seem to be able to tolerate wearing a bra at the moment (TMI I know :oops: !) as the ribs seem to hurt just around the area where the bra goes and below. I am not in the shape to be walking around bra-less though :oops: aaarrrgghhhh just as well it's cold at the moment so wearing a thick jumper disguises what I am NOT wearing :oops: :oops: :oops:

I'd never heard of it till now but...... I do suffer rib pains, I just put it down to Fibro ( as you do :roll: ) I dread having to put a bra on and only do so if I really can't avoid it.

lol I got so desperate about this bra business :( I ended up going to a really good underwear shop and asked about non wired bras thinking that might be better. Well they were hideous things and a definite no-no so this very kind lady re-measured me and found some bras which are made of very soft strechy material and the wires are in a different place plus made of softer flexible stuff. She said if my ribs had been bruised due to wearing tighter bra it will take quite a while for the pain to go down so when at home just go bra-less :oops: and give it time to settle down lol I also find heat pack works a treat on the rib pain.
Just a thought lol
