You have not mentioned since when you are having this pain. It can be a muscle pain. I would suggest you to take Brufen tablet, Diclofenec ointment and Hot water fomentaion. If your pain increases then you should show to orhtopaedic surgeon. Do not do any heavy weight lifting ,gym or running activity.

5 years ago I hurt my rib/ chest area pulling a box and sort of swinging it into positon. I thought it was just a pulled muscle.I still have such constant pain...these are just some of the words used to describe it. soft tissue injury , mayafashia(spelling?) nuerapathic...I am on Fentynal 5omg from 125.hasn t helped much, so I asked to go off I also developed pnuemonia and was in a comas for 18 days.(2years agao) I have had the nightmares , and memory problems...just reaading today made it sound normal...I find it very hard to read now, if I have to put the book down, I completely forget what I ve read, I feel like my mouth has been crooked ever since and sometimes think I m drooling. I know so what is my question? 1) is this pain (chronic) ever going to get better? all this from a pulled muscle? 2) now they are saying my memory problems are from the drugs...? COMP wants/demands me to get off drugs and get a job(duh, i want thast too!) but now another pain clinic wants to put me on suboxone . I have gotten down on the Fentynal and asked today to try another 25 less, but now I have to wait til an opening at the facility to have an opening....im rambling because i am in so much pain, andd confused and frustrated...can you sort thru this? Any help, ideas
