    Yep, i get kinda deformed looking too, but not from my chest, i get a large "Igor" hump on my upper spine and my left shoulder will look very boney, swollen and way different then the other side, MRIs show a few discs herniaed but nothing that required surgery or made the drs feel it was anything that was a big deal. i finally gave up after going in so many times for it, nobody could seem to find anything, so ive just been living with it. i never put the it together with the chest symptoms, next time it acts up ill pay more attention..i always try to just pretty much ignor everthing lol!

    You are right about doing nothing, that is the ONLY thing that helps me, lots of rest, that is hard for me, i work 12hour days, lol. I have gone in and been told maybe it was blood clots thank god it wasnt, costo, inflammation, rib out, hypermobile joints, ive done all kinds of heart tests, cat scans, xrays..ugg and no answers. Mine is aweful on the left side, sometimes it looks like my shoulder is distorted too, i dont know if its all swelled up or what, it goes down into my ribs, normally starts in the back below my left shoulder blade, then it can wrap around to the front at times, very sharp stabbing pains when i breathe, i am very tough, and ill tell ya, it can take me to my knees. sometimes it radiates to the right as well and sometimes i can feel it in my arms, but almost all the time its the left side.

    It seems like i have had it forever! First i started going to a chiro who told me i have had ribs out, i finally couldnt take it anymore & went to my Primary dr, My dr sent me to Physical therapy for Costo & the Physical therapist was really cool &said yeah, you have hypermobiltiy & she felt it was from inflammation, so she said to see a rhuemy, went to one & he was a real jerk who didnt look or listen to me and i gave up at that point, ended up back in PT cause it hurts so bad, she told me to get a second opinion, so i did some googeling around & found a rheumy who spent time with me & has really helped me alot &gave me the lupus diagnosis, started me on plaquinel which has given me alot more energy, a prednisone pack which is helping with the rib thing and this week i started imuran, she said she felt that the whole rib thing is just deep deep inflammation. i hope she is right! glad to have someone else out there with it, now i know im not nutso!! lol sorry about the book!
