lower rib discomfort
I have been having some pain, discomfort in my lower rib cage area:
-Bottom left rib is swollen a bit uneven from right side
-I feel around with fingers, and find a sore spot that is very tender
-I can feel a nerve or something which seems to be causing the pain
-Very dull pain but sensitive to touch
-Have had no trauma to the area, just a very hard cough a week ago which I think cause the rib to move out and pinch a nerve
-I can breath, move, cough, sneeze with no pain/discomfort just when I touch this area it hurts.
What could this be>? the lowest rib is protruding slightly and I have a dull pain from the breastbone, its really strange!
