Suggest Remedies For Pain In The Ribs
Clinical evaluation, CT scan of the chest
Thanks for your query.
Noted the history and understood the concerns.
Dull pain is inside the rib cage - on left side - under shoulder blade - multiple back surgeries but pain not in surgical area...
All this indicate that there may be a problem with the lung and/or pleura on the affected side.
I would advise you the following in such a situation:
Clinical evaluation and examination by a Doctor particularly to hear the breathing sounds called auscultation. It can show peculiar sounds and indicate for any internal problem.
X-ray of the chest in PA and left lateral position as a preliminary investigations to be followed by CT scan if anything is required to get an appropriate diagnosis so that an appropriate management can be done.
I hope this answer helps you.
