Burning pain in right ribcage. Treated for a mild herniated thoracic disc and decompression. Is it Menopause stage?

I m 54, in full blown menopause . Almost 5 yrs ago I developed a burning pain in my right ribcage. Right away I was tested for gall bladder problems-negative. Since then I ve had every test & treatment you can imagine. I ve been treated for a mild herniated thoracic disc, decompression, nerve block , 4 pts, lyrica , cymbalta, neurontin name it, I ve tried it. No relief from anything. Now folks are suggesting it s a menopause symptom and it ll pass when I m through. What? I m unable to pay at this time due to financial problems. Thanks anyway.

Thank for choosing HCM, I can understand your financial problem,, I red your complain & I could say that this not a menopausal syndrome,, your rt side chest pain must be because of some non specific pathology, because you don not have any associated complain like fever, productive cough, weight loss, etc, you can only do it, and that is wait & watch, if it worse then see the doctor, Have nice day
