Hey Bob My pain started at the rib right under my left breast, hurt to laugh, sneeze, blow my nose; doc gave me steroids, made it more tolerable but it was still there, then the pain moved to behind my breast, but i didn't return to the doc (the doc in the box was going to schedule me a CAT scan if the pain didn't get better) but as usual, i didn't go back. Now the pain has moved to my left pec muscle and hurts to my left armpit. This is very strange. Never have had pain move; had pluersy (not sure how to spell) about 10-12 years ago, pain was on right side, about midway hip to breast, felt like someone was stabbing a knife in my rib. Do you have any pain before, like maybe lower like mine? Also, do you remember anything you did that could have strained your rib muscle? I fell off the bed and caught myself with my left arm (however the pain had begun 3 weeks before I fell; it started after i had stuffed myself at a Cracker Barrel, started sneezing (and I do have hard, loud voilent sneezes) I couldn't stop sneezing, it hurt so bad. After the first sneeze it felt like someone had stabbed me right below my left breast with a knife. Got a little better over the next week or so, but then i fell and its like it aggrivated the problem. It hurt so bad I was crying my eyes out at a business gathering and the next day at the airport. Would love to hear back from you. Let me know if you have any new information as to what this couled mean, be. Thanks.
