Hi,

How are you?
Intercoastal neuralgia occurs due to pain arising from the nerves that innervate the spaces between the ribs which are called intercoastal spaces.
Episodic pain in the back and sides along with tingling and numbness are characteristic.
It is important to rule out other causes of your symptoms like a cardiovascular disease and gall bladder disease.
Take care!
