For around 3-4 months now, I've had some rather burning pain in my right side, about 3-4 inches below the shoulder, approx on the midline of my side, maybe a bit more toward the back. It's directly over my ribs on the side. No pain in abs, or associated back pain. It only hurts if I twist to my left with my right elbow out away from my body. If I twist to the left and keep my right elbow tucked into my side, I have no pain at all. No pain when breathing or resting.
I've been to a chiropractor, massage therapist, my GP..no one can tell me what it is. The only thing I can figure is maybe a strain/tear of maybe an oblique, teres major/minor or latissimus dorsi muscle. Anyone here have any ideas? If it is a tear, how would I go about healing it, and how long should it take?
