What causes pain in right rib cage radiating to hip bone and leg?
It's been hurting mildly for almost 2 weeks. No other symptoms.
The pain also radiates to my right inner hipbone and even my right foot.
No fever, no bowel movements issues, or pain associated with after or while eating.Does not hurt when I breath.
Does not bother me when sleeping.
Can be a pinched nerve.
Thanks for posting your query.
The mild pain inside the rib cage that radiates to the hip bone and leg is likely to be related to a pinched nerve. This can be due to a mild disc prolapse or muscle spasm also.
You can take a mild pain killer and do a hot compress in the area for relief. Taking methylcobalamin supplements will also help in case it is a nerve related cause.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.

Its already been almost 2 weeks...
It started with the inside of my right ribcage mild pain, then a couple of days later i started having pressure pain in my right inner hip bone, the ptessure pain was along my right bikini are, and a few days after that my right foot started hurting when i step on it. Its not my heel but the buttom front bone of my foot.
All the areas are still mildly bothering me . :(
Can take 3-4 weeks.
Thanks for writing again.
If it is due to a disc bulge or a nerve root compression then you need medicines like pregabalin and vitamin B 12 supplements to make it better. Regular back strengthening exercises will also help. Can take 3-4 weeks of proper treatment after a proper diagnosis.
Hope my answer is helpful.
