Rib Pain
May 17, 2007
I have another question:confused: Rib pain? Is it connected to lyme and if so, why? Most of my issues are on my right side of my body and I remember a couple of months ago I started getting this awful rib pain on the lower right side. Last rib area and would hurt if I pushed in. I had it for a couple of weeks but thought that maybe I overdid something.

FInally my husband told me it did not sound normal and to get it checked. My lovely PCP checked me out (knowing I had tested positive for lyme a few months earlier) and said that she thought it was my gallbladder or liver so she sent me for ultrasound which looked normal. Pain still lasted for several day and then just went away.

This morning it came back and it hurts :mad: :mad: Same exact area as before.

Any ideas? Anyone had it & if so, what is good for it because ibuprofen does not seem to help.

Thanks

Tammy, I have had it on and off for about 6 years, Have had several ultrasounds of all organs several years apart.the last being 2 months ago. I have never gotten an explanation of why it is there, and it comes and goes, sometimes hurts so bad for weeks. Ifeel it from the front of ribs around to my back sometimes, other times it is just in the front. I can relate but don't have an answer either. I just assume it is the LD. I have't found anything that helps the pain either. I also have apin in chest area that was diag. as Tietze syndrome, it gets very sore sometimes. I look at it this way, at least I know there is nothing wrong with my organs or heart. trying to stay positive LOL! Hope this could help, Sarah:wave:
