In Reply to: rib cage PLEASE HELP posted by Steve on October 30, 2000 at 19:05:09:
: I am a 23 year old male, and a while back my ribs and my hips started getting closer. It is now to the point where they are touching. I am finding it harder to get comfortable when I sleep or even sit down at the computer. They touch when I am in the standing position so when I sit or lay down my ribs go in under my hips. I am finding it very painful during intamacy because of my ribs rubbing my hips. I also think it is weird that my sternum is flexible. My freinds are almost rock hard where I can push it in with one hand. I went to a doctor and asked him about this and he said it was nothing to worry about but that I was the only person he had ever seen that could give himself CPR. I was just wondering if this is some sort of deformaty, and somthing I just need to learn to live with or try to get fixed. Any help would be great.
Make sure you are geting enough calcium, magnesium and vit. D to help make your bones stronger---it sound like osteoporosis. I hope the Doc checked for this.
