i went to the pain clinic yesterday as my Gp and gastro doc cannot find the cause for my pain, and within 20mins of being in the room he said i had costochondritis on the right side upper back below my shoulder blade and also on the last rib/false rib.
The pain doesnt keep me up at night im sooo exsausted come bed time i sleep straight away. But it does come back after about 10 to 20 mins being awake in the morning i do also experience really painful arm pain with this as well.
I do have 2 sore spots on my right side one direcltly inline with my bra line and the other is the very last rib
At the end of the day i feel like my whole right side from the bottom rib right up to my shoulder into arm and hands ache almost like i have excercised my muscle are soo sore to touch.
Does this sound like costo???
As i have the pain all day sometimes dull sometimes really painful. Only on the odd day does it radiate into my left shoulder blade and chest it is more or less always in my right side.
They want to do an xray so they can inject some steriods into my ribs so they can watch it. Any Info would be appreciated on this.
