I think I have had this on and off for a long time. I thought it was from not taking calcium, and weakened bone mass causing the rib pain. It is my left side, second or third rib down, always in the exact same spot. I would take calcium and the rib pain would go away. To me it is not severe, but still...
Don't think it is active at the moment. I am going to look into this more.
Geez the body is so complicated.
Pleurisy -- Google fixed the spelling.
The link above has pics.
Also called pleuritis, pleurisy typically causes sharp pain, almost always when you take a breath.
P.S. Thanks for this post
