Severe pain in ribs

Feb 28, 2015 9:55 AM

I woke this am with horrible pain in my ribs on the left side. I don't think it's the Costcochrronditis this time. It seems almost like its spasming. I can't afford a trip to the ER yet it feels like I should go. It's at a constant level with intermittent severe jabs.

Any idea?

You should go to the ER in case it's chest pain...

I have the same thing going on. I asked my lung doctor and he said it's likely gas. He recommeded I take BeaNo for a week to see if the symptoms go away. Otherwise, he said it's likely compression pain from my car accident and then it'll be a slow healing process. I hope this helps!
