Yes, I had over a month of left sidd rib pain just prior to a major ms relapse. I don't mean to scare you but have it hecked out. Mine is still unexplained. They all just acted as if I pulled something. For something to be that painful I would remember if I had done something to myself.
Thank you for your response. Yes I am currently taking 40mg baclofen daily for muscle spasms in my legs and arms. Over the past two weeks i've noticed that this so called "hug" is around my neck. I would refer to it as more of a strangulation than a hug. Would prednisone relieve these symptoms? Also does this "hug" cause loss of sensation in swallowing/difficulty in swallowing?
I've been having rib pain for several months now along with depression, fatigue, shooting electric shocks down my neck, back pain, general feeling of weakness. Lots of joint pain. Feel woozy and poor balance. Sometimes I get the shakes in my arms and legs. My doc thought maybe arthritis, then maybe lung problems (cat scan showed nothing), bad disk ? (back mri showed nothing)
he then said that I was depressed and maybe I need to see a psyc. I go there tomorrow.
He wants me to have a cardiac stress test, but my hmo keeps blowing me off. I cant get an appointment.
Doc mentioned almost in passing that the next step will probably be a brain mri. I thought, whats this about?. Then he said, you might have ms.
Yes I too had rib pain the doctors thought it was my gallbladder but it turned out to be 5 broken ribs on the right side you see I have ms & I has to have 12000 mg's of liquid steroids in a year which caused me to have osteoperosis thats why somehow I broke the ribs & did'nt know it
have pain off and on my rite side rib cage, my stomache thinks it is getting squished, got pain in lower rib and got a big bump. my docter ordered a chest ex ray ?? what the hell is it, he said possible floating rib.. any ideas ??
