Thread: my ribs are killing me

  1. #1

    my ribs are killing me

    My ribs hurt for no reason, and just all of a sudden. My parents think its because of smoking. I honestly dont know why. It has been happening for about 3 months. Ill just be sitting around in the house and all of a sudden they will start to hurt really bad. They hurt exactly on my ribs right under my breasts. There is a chance i might be pregnant but, I'm not completely sure. i just wanna know why my ribs just randomly start hurting for no reason at all. I didnt sprain my ribs, or break them in the past, I didnt do nothin for them to start hurting.
    Can someone just tell me what they think... bc my cousin said it might be cancer that his wife had.. on her ribs, and I just want some opinions

    I am almost always on AIM (aol instant messanger) if anyone wants to talk about it there.

    Hi Omgosh.

    I'm sorry to hear about your health. BUT i would recommend anyone that can help, to post here. As, we can all benefit and try to help you. (plus may aid someone else).

    You should have it professionally looked at. It could be as simple as a sprain muscle, or asthma. But if you have it looked at you'll know for sure, especially if you are worried about any Cancer.

    What Cancer did your cousins wife have??

    Anyway good luck- and best wishes.

    omgosh, I am very glad you now know why you are in pain and that it is not cancer. Gal bladder problems do not metastasize

    HI, I am new here, but saw your posting on your ribs. I hope it is your Gall Bladder, for your sake. I have an undiagnosed pain in my ribs that leaves me completely unable to move due to the excruciating pain. I was on opiates for years due to lower back pain, so I am way too familiar with some of these problems.

    If the surgery stops your pain, great. If it comes back, you might research Bernholm's Disease/Coxsackievirus B and a potential tie in to C. Diff. No one seems to know what to do with mine since it comes and goes. Best wishes though....
