Suggest Treatment For Pain In The Ribs
Provide some more details, please!
I am so sorry to hear about this pain. I will suggest that you provide some more details to me for proper evaluation and guidance.
1. Is this pain under the rib cage or the chest ?
2. Does it change with breathing ?
3. How long has this been going on ?
4. Did it start suddenly or gradually? On a scale of 1-10, How bad is it ?
5. Do you have cough, fever, runny nostrils ?
This will help me to provide a list of possible conditions that can cause this. Some may be related to an infection, some to the liver, some to the muscles and soft tissues, etc.
I hope to hear from you at your earliest convenience on the above questions and do promise to get back as soon as possible.
Beside, did the muscle relaxant help you ?
Get your gall bladder checked!
Thanks for the responses. From the information, this may be suggestive of a gallbladder disease. I will suggest that you get an ultrasound of the gall bladder. This will also look at the liver and kidneys as we. All this will provide guidance in identifying the cause and proposing a plan that will help address this.
With a pain of 9/10, and should it continue, I suggest you see a pain management specialist as this requires more potent pain medications that can only be prescribed by your treating physician.
I hope this helps. I wish you well. Let me know what your take is and keep me posted on your progress.
