| | Painful ribcage
I have had pain in my left upper chest for some time. I've had bouts of pleurisy and pericarditis, but this constant pain they say is costocondritis. Not sure about that, as they say you can recreate the pain if you press on it. Mine does NOT hurt when pressed upon. But as i said i have constant pain. Some days it's so so, others its bad. But one thing i have noticed, and wondered if others have too. When i wake in the morning, i feel as if my whole entire ribcage hurts. Even on the right side, and the lower ribcage, where i've never had much of an issue. It's just an all over ache, and i can with certainty pinpoint it to my ribcage. Even before i get out of bed, i can feel it ache, and rolling over or moving aggravates it more til i get up and get going and i guess "loosen up". Anyone else have this first thing in the morning?
