Very concerned. I have been having bad pain on my right back area. My chiropractor suggested I go to the hospital to make sure it wasn't kidney pain. CAT scan showed a spot on my liver. ER docs said that wouldn't be what was causing my pain (everyone is saying it must be a muscle strain/intercostal muscle strain) but that it was likely a fatty lesion and I needed an MRI. I'm getting one next Sat.

I have had chronic back pain for years, but not in this spot. I have bought a new chair at work in case that was the problem (the issue is magnified by about 1000% when sitting at work - I almost can't do it), have seen the chiropractor 3-4 times per week lately, am starting PT tomorrow, have seen my Dr. and the ER doctors. Tuesday will be two weeks and I can't take it anymore. I can't work like this. the pain makes me nauseous. I feel like I'm being stabbed. When not in that position for 8 hours I'm better - its still clearly there, but I'm not in so much agony.

Has anyone been through this? Does it sound like an intercostal muscle strain? Perhaps from shoveling heavy snow 2 weeks ago? the pain came on a day after the shoveling. The pain is in my back ribcage extending around to my ribs in front on right side.
