Chest discomfort and rib pain

Hi,
New to this particular board and have a question about my mom......
She has recently been having really bad pain in her chest and all around her ribs.....
We have been assuming that the pain in her rib area is coming from radiation that she had after having breast cancer.... And more recently she's been having very strong pains in her chest that go right through to her back.....they get worse when she lies down...
She's had her heart checked out and everything is fine there......
Her doctor thinks it may be coming from her osteoporosis or potentially her stomach (as she also suffers from reflux problems).
Has anyone ever had these kinds of pain? Would greatly appreciate some input.

Thanks, Carsam

Do you know if she still has her gallbladder? A lot of times the gallbladder can cause the symptoms you've described when it has stones, sludge or isn't operating properly.  Since her heart is fine, it wouldn't hurt to check into it.
