pain to touch and deep breath between left 10th and 11th rib 4 weeks, now on right 7th and 8th rib, not as bad. xray lung ok, thoratic and lumbar spine show disc compression L-1 (from injury) osteophites thoratic region. Cervical MRI shows age related (69) moderate cord impingment 4-5 and 5-6 mild in remaining segments, plus foraminal spaces narrowed. DISH arthritis and Osteo arthritis. Lots of tingles all over body, muscle twitching. My concern is the rib space pain and pins and needles (tingling). Neuro Dr. says he doesn t think the cervical problems are the causes.. Any ideas ?

Thanks for writing to us.
The symptoms that you are having are likely to be due to a nerve root compression or irritation near the spine. This needs proper physiotherapy exercise and methylcobalamin supplements for an improvement.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
