My left ribs hurt really really really bad. It is not a muscle issue. I take 60mg of morphine er and 60mg of oxycodone and that does not help the pain.

I see a lung doctor in 2 weeks. The pain is behind my ribs. I had a bone scan and i just have bilaterial arthritis.

I go hang out with a friend who has his own construction business and he was fixing 2 holes in the floor.

He is now having the same pain as i do. I think we got some kind of mold infection.

What else could it be?

    Pleurisy

    Had it in college one time. Every breath was like getting stabbed. My sister took great pleasure telling jokes and making me laugh. Still can feel that pain. Antibiotics and NSAID generally can clear it up.

    Why do our sibling take so much pleasure, in tormenting us[;)][:D][:D][:D] I broke my leg playing football and my sister would take a feather and tickle my feet until I was doubled over from laughing. I miss her not living close to me anymore.

    My Brother lives here in ATL and I get to see him pretty regularly. My sister lives near my Mom and PWillie. Went to a party at my brothers last weekend and was surprised to have my sister show up. Her hubby had a business event in Birmingham on Sunday and they rerouted to spend a Saturday evening with us.

    I was hoping to see her next weekend for Dads birthday, but looks like I will have to get some work done...

    First i went to the doctor because i had left rib pain and when i was rubbing it i noticed a 3 inch spot on my solar plex.

    My doctor did an x-ray and nothing showed up. She ordered a bone scan and all it showed was bilateral arthritis.

    My doctor gave me a z pack i think and it was better for about 10 days. Now it is back and hurts almost like cancer.

    People look at me funny when i am walking and holding my side because it feels like something is falling out.

    I just looked it up and i have a lung doctor wen at 10am.

    Ever had shingles? Any itching?

    My check began itching insessantly for a day and a half or so. Was diagnosed with shingles, then it hit. Like Mike Tyson had his way with my ribs. Oh man it hurt.
    Half of the lives they tell about me aren't true.
