Constant Pain in my ribcage..?

Hello there, I just joined.

Was wondering if anyone could help.

I have been in constant pain for several months now. My entire ribcage from front to back top to bottom has been aching consistently day and night.
I have not injured my ribs, I seem to have no real issues of my health, I've had x-rays on my chest that have shown no issues, I do not have a cough.
This pain is about a 2 or 3 out of ten. It is more of a tightness than anything. It feels very pressured like the skin is stretching to hard over my ribs..or maybe everything underneath is pushing to hard outwards.
It is not severe, but it never goes away so I am never able to be comfortable.

This has occurred now for several years, generally showing up every few months and staying a week or so and disappearing just as quick. Over the last 8 months it has occurred more frequently and generally stays longer. I've had it this time for a few months, and now I am experiencing frequent mid/lower back pain every night along with it.

I have been checked my doctors by doctors for this several times, they do the routine line of questioning and take a test here or there, and there has never been an answer or a solution.

Does anyone have any ideas for me? Any suggestions as to a type of specialist I should see?

It takes me hours to sleep every night and I'm never comfortable. I'd like to find an end to this one day!

Any input is graciously appreciated.




Thank you!
