What Causes Sharp Pain In The Ribcage When I Move?

default
Posted on Thu, 20 Oct 2016
Question: On the right side of my back, behind my lower rib cage, I get a sharp pain when I twist. I thought it was just a back strain, but it doesn't feel like that, it feels more like tissue than muscle. No limitation in movement, it just hurts when I move wrong. I had breast cancer in 2010, stage 1, T 3. Regular blood work and checkups, I just worry. Does it sound like possible pancreatic, kidney or gall bladder?

Brief Answer:
Likely musculoskeletal,

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for asking

i read your question and i understand your concern. Pain in back with movement and history of breast cancer is likely a musculoskeletal pain and possibly pinched nerve . I would like you to try some tylenol and some muscle relaxant and see if it helps. Although there is no harm to get evaluated for gall bladder pancreas or gastritis which are less likely as per history .

I hope it helps. Take good care of yourself and dont forget to close the discussion please.
