Pain In Ribs. Inflated? What May Be Wrong?

Sir, My right side floating rib hits somewhere and I am having pain while moving side to side when I sleep. Feels like the rib is hitting some organs or the muscles where may be some inflammation. I have taken X-ray , gone through CT-Scan and Lever test and as per the direction of a hospital but they could not find out anything wrong. I am 53 year old.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

If ‘they could not find out anything wrong,’ then rest assured there is nothing serious or significant.
It could be muscle spasm – strong skeletal muscles are related to that rib and a sprain may be responsible. Posture at bed and/or work may cause or contribute
Relaxation exercises, yoga and muscle relaxants may help.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
