Could be pressure on thoracic nerves / Costo Chondritis

Detailed Answer:
Hi I am Dr Gopal Goel Orthopedic Surgeon.
In my opinion this kind of pain is usually die to pressure on thoracic nerves / or costo chondritis( Inflammation of the rib cartilage).
I suggest X Ray Of D-L Spine , S Vitamin D3 S Vitamin B12 and one Nerve conduction velocity test for thoracic nerves.
In the mean time start mild pain killers, muscle relaxants and a combination of Pregabalin + Methycobalamine.
Thanx for the question. Please feel free to ask any other question.

HI,

I'm 28 yr old female, i have hair fall problem from past 3 to 4 years. My hair started thinning only in the front. I used several lotions like ervamatine, hair for u, for some days it was fine & later it gave me side effects like dandruff skin problems like acne. Recently i consulted a dermatologist where she asked me to take thyroid, blood test & ultra sound ( abdomon) all the tests was fine for me except for deficiency in Vitamin B12 & vitamin D. I was prescribed with Anaphase shampoo & neoptide spray. I'm still worried if this would solve my problem. Will neoptide spray has any side effects before i go ahead & use i wanted to be 100% sure. If i have to use them should i sue these products for life long?Please advise.
