Have pain on both sides, more severely on the right side, at the front of my body just under my ribs/bottom of my ribs. Feels like severe bruising?

Have pain on both sides, more severely on the right side, at the front of my body just under my ribs/bottom of my ribs. Feels like severe bruising?

Possibility: I wonder if it's something called costochondritis, which is inflammation of the cartilage in between your ribs which can feel an awful lot like bruising. The other anatomy around there would not make sense bilaterally to both be feeling the same way. Have you tried any OTC meds? I might try 500mg naproxen twice daily and heat to the area. See your doc if no better after a couple of days. ...Read more

Pain middle back both sides nr bottom of ribs. Also centre upper back and front rhs under ribs. Appt at gp not for 2 weeks should I go to urgent care?

Depends.: If the pain is new and severe, or you have fever, shortness of breath, numbness, tingling, weakness, or other serious symptoms, then get seen sooner. If you have had this pain for months, and it has not gotten worse, then waiting for 2 weeks is not unreasonable. You must judge or call the doctor's office again, and ask them once more. We don't know enough about your general health and symptoms. ...Read more

Can slouching & rounding shoulders cause rib pain? Dx'd w/fibromyalgia & costochondritis... Tender pain on both sides of sternum & along bottom ribs.

Yes: Rounded shoulders shortens the muscles in the front and pulls the ones in the back.
This can effect your upper back, sternum and ribs.
I would consider simple non painful postural stretches to start and physical therapy if simple does not help. ...Read more
