There are some portions of my ribs that are sore to the touch. If I press on a sore area, I experience severe pain. Within a few minutes, it dies down and turns to itching. Eventually it all calms down. What is this? I have cervical myelopathy and fibromyalgia. Could be the latter, I guess. I don't know if I should say something to the doctor or just live with it. It only hurts when I press on it. Sound familiar to anyone?
I too have right rib pain, but mine hurts ALL the time. Everyday, all day long. Sometimes the pain is an extremely sharp jabbing, stabbing, take my breath pain. I also have nausea along with that. Who knows what all of that is about. I've been put through all kinds of testing. (ct scan, various kidney test, and lab)
Itching "could" be a sign of either liver or kidney problems. The least they could do is some blood work to make sure the liver and kidney are functioning well. Is it both ribs, or just one.
