I Feel Pain In My Spine And Ribs When I Breath Deep What Is The Problem
I have middle back pain and pain under my left rib cage. There is an increase in pain when i take a deep breath, what could this be?
Pleurisy: Sounds like it could be pleurisy. If you don't have a rash on your skin that looks like blisters (which would be shingles), this is likely an inflammation of the lining of your lungs. Ibuprofen (if ok with your system) is the treatment of choice. Other possibilities are a pulled ribcage muscle - if that's the case, Ibuprofen is still the treatment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Need further eval: It could be simply musculoskeletal such as a rib fracture or pulled muscle. However, your shortness of breath is concerning. You may have a blood clot in your lungs which could cause these symptoms. Your symptoms might be something going on with your lungs or heart so see a healthcare provider as soon as possible or further workup. ...Read more
I have middle back pain and pain under my left rib cage. There is an increase in pain when i take a deep breath, it is not muscular, what could it be?
Difficult to say: There are many possibilities here. The pain could be coming from the spine. I am not sure how you know it is not muscular. Other possible pain generators include the lungs, ribs or the internal organs. This could be a pain that originates exactly where you feel it or could be referred from a more distant location. You need a good physical examination by an md/do who is used to dealing with this. ...Read more
