Rib pain: Bilateral rib pain has many causes. It could be chest wall related or even from abdominal causes. The positional nature of your pain points to musculoskeletal conditions. Spinal issues like scoliosis and gait abnormalities are included. Some females who have pendulous breasts can have similar symptoms.
