I have a tightness in the ribs area...just below the chest.
i thought it was possibly nerve related...it wraps around to my back.
Evanston - did it start just recently ? Was it with the start of a new medication?
I hope it resolves for you soon!
I had tightness in the ribs, too, all the way across right under my breast area. At the worst, the tightness was so bad I couldn't stand up straight.
I also had inflammation all the way through my chest cavity that wrapped around to my upper and middle back and up into my shoulders and upper arms.
For me, those symptoms felt like massive inflammation instead of nerve related.
The tightness is a horrible feeling.
i've also had what I call the MS "hug". where the tightness ramps up and it feels like one wrong move and my back (in the thoracic area) will be 'out'.
What a constellation of symptoms we experience....it's ridiculous.
