That started for me yesterday! I understand your pain! Literally! Mine is more of an ache, but ribs hurting are no fun. I also had a hard time getting up and down bc of it. Hopefully it will go away for both of us!

Oh, and YUM!!

I have rib pain with lupus all the time.
Is it on the right side? If so look into gallbladder, and or costcochrondritis. Inflammation under the rib cage.

Mizzy I hope you've got a doctor's appointment booked to get rib pain looked at???
I've not found the doc or his tardis yet so I'd have to get my row boat out to come over and drag your arse kicking and screaming to see your doctor....

You are not a liar or a faker, people who say that haven't walked in your shoes, they don't have a chronic condition so they don't/won't/can't understand. They only see you on your good days, they don't see you when you've been throwing your guts up, when you're pretty much bed bound with the pain or how you're unable to do even the most basic chores because of the pain and the utter exhaustion you have.
Let them think what they want and if they say anything just tell them that until they walk in your shoes they have no right to even comment and their opinion means nothing.

MMMMMMM I love Shrimp Alfredo but my kids won't eat shrimp and I've forgotten how to make it now 😢 but I really want it now!!!! Can you forward me your recipe please?

MizzMonroe that sucks and I know that pain very well. We've become very well acquainted over the last several years!! Have your doctor check you over.
This may sound like a crazy question but do you still have your gallbladder? I had pains in my chest and under my ribcage when mine went bad. I had enough stones to make a necklace and it had to go!! It was just in recent years after seeing several docs that I was diagnosed with costochondritis. It's not fun.. All in the day of a person with chronic pain. Feel better!!💕😊

Mizzy you know I'm here, I don't know what I'd do if you were sending me pics or your art and fur babies especially when Deadpol decides to take a nap laying across your art or attacking your hands to stop you doing your art!!! And he's just too cute to stay mad at 😂
I'm hunting the doc as I type.....that tardis will be ours soon I promise you, it won't take me long to hunt it down......

Dec 09, 2016 3:10 PM

I hope that you can get some answers and a compassionate Dr.

Dec 09, 2016 4:16 PM

I was thinking Costochondritis too

Dec 10, 2016 12:16 AM

Yessssss dont forget the unicorns

Dec 10, 2016 12:26 AM

The unicorns are easier to find than that dammed tardis....the doc must know I'm searching for it.....

I know how awful rib pain is especially when it is hard to describe. I complained of chest pain so I was put on an ECG. I knew I wasn't having a heart attack. It felt like broken ribs trying to saw me in half. Anyway I now know to describe it as pleural pain. As I have multiple stable vertebrae fractures the pain is usually caused by a rib being out of place. It hurts to breathe in and I feel like I can't get enough air. My physio does massage and manipulate it to a comfortable position. Maybe get your back checked as your ribs can be painfully affected if the alignment is off.

I'm sorry you're going through this :( it must be terrible.

Dec 10, 2016 9:51 PM

Hang in there MizzMonroe, I know how hard it all is. You have many here to help you get through this!!!

Dec 10, 2016 10:24 PM

I have had on and off pain in my ribs for years, I get it getting up sucks! It kinda feels like getting a hug from a crusher. It hurts to breathe and or move. I get used to it after a while and then I'll sit or stand and get a wake up call. Through the climate change is the worst, for me anyway. So when snow is coming or spring, or rain or the sun goes up or comes down lol. I hope you feel better soon.

I didn't read the entire string of comments, but it sounds like fibromyalgia pain or you have some arthritic issues with your ribs. I have fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. My pain is always triggered by an oncoming low pressure system. And my worst pain is when low pressure comes down from Canada. I spent everyday but one last week in bed after getting up in the morning following a pretty decent night's sleep. There were lots of different low pressure systems hanging around and they knock me out, and all I can do is sleep
