Why does my rib jut out? Can pop out collar bone ...

So, on my left rib cage, second rib down from the top, the rib is a little ganrled and juts out where it connects to the sternum. Also, my collar bone on the same side of my body is a little misshapen, and I can make it pop out where it meets the front of my neck by bending back my shoulder Wink It's great to freak people out with.

I did fall down the stairs as a baby, but the doctor told my mom and dad I was fine (my mom looked away for one second, and there goes tyna! kathunk a thunk a thunk!)

Note: This does not worry or concern me in any way shape or form. I'm just curious! I've never had a doctor ever say anything about it.

I don't have any idea of what might be the cause of your, umm, "abilities" Very Happy but the "kathunk a thunk" line almost made me pee my pants I was laughing so hard. Laughing

You might have dislocated your collarbone on your head-over-heels performance and the joint is now unstable, allowing you to amuse yourself and others. I was bucked off a horse onto a fence when I was about 10 and dislocated my shoulder. Since then, it has a calcium buildup in the joint which sticks up, but I've never been able to pop it out of joint. You are indeed a talented woman! Very Happy

Interestingly, I've had only one doctor in all my visits even comment on the anomaly in my shoulder joint. I guess they don't always see something unless you alert them to it.

Yeah, I've always considered asking. I guess they must assume that the patient already knows about certain things, so they just don't mention it.

I have a rib that just out on the left side - and for years, thought it was a growth. turns out (my best guess) is that it's a skeletal re-structuring to accommodate for an injury I had to my right knee when I was 16...my body literally moved b/c of the way I was repeatedly moving. Anything happening on the opposite side of your body?

Not really. I mean, the bottom floating rib on the opposite side always pops against the rib above with when I do sit ups so I hate them, but I don't think that's due to anything. That's about it. Oh and I had minor scoliosis that didn't need any treatment when I was 12.
