Hello Cara! Thank you for choosing health care magic. Based upon your age you need proper work up for your condition. I advise you to see your family physician and get the chest x ray done as per his instructions. Some complicated conditions like multiple mylemoma, lung ailments could be associated with such symptoms like rib pain and back pain. Visit physician at the earliest.
