What are the side effects of costochondritis under rib cage and bronchitis?
I have costochondritis on the right rib cage, I have bronchitis and coughed earlier heard a pop sound right lower rib (where the costochondritis hurt the most within the last month.) Now I literally can t make any upper body movement without being in intense pain. What could have the pop sound be?
It can even be a broken rib. Generally it is a joint pop just the way fingers and knees pop and does not indicate anything. In the prior presence of irritation of the joints, the pop will hurt. Aspirin like drugs are very good for it. Generally it goes away but it takes weeks.
Hope I have answered your query.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
