Unhappy Bad rib cage pain

I'm a 24 year old female and for the past week and a half ive been having very bad rib cage pain. It started on just the right side and now it hurts all over. It hurts mostly on the right side but still hurts all over. I went to the urgent care center four days ago and the doctor said that it might be a muscle spasm and recomended I take motrin and a muscle relaxer. She told me to take it for five days and if the pain doesn't go away to go back to the urgent care center. I didn't go and get the medications yet for personal reasons and now the pain is really bad. It used to hurt with certain movements and when I lay down, get up and laugh or cough or sneeze and I couldn't even lay flat on my back because it would hurt. Now when I try to lay on my back it hurts so bad. It's starting to hurt when I even lay on my sides and it takes me a while just to get up from bed. The pain feels like it's getting worse. I'm going to get the medications tomorrow but I'm just scared it could be something else. Does anyone have any ideas as to what could be causing the pains I am feeling. It is getting worse and I am scared because it's my whole rib cage that is hurting. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Re: Bad rib cage pain

The pain is getting worse. I couldn't sleep on my back last night and it was hard to lie on my side. I ended up taking a shower but I kept feeling dizzy and had to hold onto the handles. It hurts even more when I make certain movements and I am worried. If anyone can help me it would be appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Bad rib cage pain

You need to go back to urgent care and beg for an x-ray at the very least.

There are a variety of reasons one could be suffering as you are...some just muscular, some pulmonary.

It's all a matter of perspective!
