It's All Connected: First possibility: reaction to meds. Second: developing rsd. Third: i've seen this a lot-pain starts in one area & spreads to another because the cause is not treated. Md's will all miss this. Osteopathic manipulation might have relieved the muscle/rib dysfunction which caused the original pain. Leaving it unresolved and covering it with meds allowed dysfunction & pain to spread. Go see a good do.
