Cancer pain: Not knowing your current medical condition, it is hard to say. If you are healthy, it may be a sign of fatigue or muscle aches and pains. If its worse not relieved by over the counter medication or topical remedies, i would see your physician to check out all the possibilties of the back/rib pain.
