Dear 4abee:  There are many possible explanations for pain and without examination, we cannot speculate on possible causes.  Our advice is to contact your doctor for evaluation.

I am not an expert, but my experience may help you.  I suffered with pain (RT side) from my breast bone, around to my spine.  It took over two years for my diagnosis.  I had 3 fractured ribs.  A fracture anywhere on the rib can cause radiating pain all around. If you (like me) had radiation to the chest wall for breast cancer, you may have weakened ribs.  I am told that this side effect is very rare. (Maybe just under-diagnosed).  Good luck!
