I'm sorry your going through this type of pain...((Hugs)). There are alot of tiny joints throughout the chest cavity and ribcage that can get inflammed and swollen. I see that you also have a history of Percarditis..Ouch! That is very painful! I agree you should tell your doctor about the swollen areas. Hopefully he/she can get this under control for you soon with a change or increase in some of your meds.
I hope you have a good weekend. Take care and keep us updated. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
I have a floating rib. At least that is what they diagnosed it. At times I can't take even a little breath and I can't even move with out this horrible sharp pain on the bottom of my right ribs. Sometimes there is a hard lump sticking out that is sore. I have to just take tiny breathes and relax and stay completely still til it stops. Usually under a minute. But then it remain a little painful when I take a deep breath. I can remember this happening even when I was a child. And then it started up again about a year ago. I swear sometimes I am a freak of nature!
Seriously, whose ribs float. Does this sound any thing like what happens to you?
