Re: back pain causing rib/abdominal pain
Since these tests have all come back normal, I can only guess it is your muscles being strained that is causing the pain. I had severe muscle strain in my back and neck from a car accident and was laid up for 6 months. Muscle strain will not show up on these tests. It is caused from the muscles being used or stretched in a way they are not used to, and is helped by physical therapy. You can usually tell yourself if it is in the muscles by pressing on the problem areas, because there will be knots, and tenderness in this area and if this is the case, they need to be kneaded out by a therapist who does soft tissue work. You can ask to be referred to PT if you think this will help you. I hope you get some relief. Good luck to you.
