Hello, my dr has put me on ibuprofen and omneprazole for suspected left shoulder muscle strain.
Upper back left side was painful and i had numbness and tingling in left arm.
Problem is now i am having severe pain all down my left ribs and extending a little around into my back. Feel very unwell when i get this pain which comes and goes and is like a gnawing pain. Eating does not affect when i get it, it comes on anytime.
No problem in the bathroom dept.
Have stopped taking the meds from the dr because of severe nausea after taking them.
Had ecg which came back perfect, blood pressure and lungs clear.
Is it normal to get severe pain down ribs with a muscle strain and why do i feel so ill when it comes on? Help relly worried.
Did they check your collar bone? I have torn rotator in shoulder and the pain does travel but not normally down from front & to back. Shoulder pain normally goes up & back. (following nervous system path.)
That is why I ask about collar bone. should ask about it. & some imaging to confirm.
