    Hey! Hope you're felling well. I have a question! Have you happen to of noticed the general area of your affected side? I noticed a few weeks ago in a picture of my boyfriend and I where I'm sort of reaching over and hugging him, my chest looks mildy (and I mean SUPER mildly) deformed. There was just a distinct outline of my sternum with the way my body was twisted. But, I assumed it must of been the angle of the camera or something. But I decided to take some pictures yesterday during an outburst of some severe pain. You can visibly see from looking up towards my chest/neck that my left side sticks out. I'm not sure if it's swelling.. If it's the actual bones.. I don't know. Does this sound familiar?! I'm gonna start a thread in 'symptoms' with the pictures. Let me know!

    Yeah I'm at a loss. I don't know what else to do! Keep me updated on your journey and I will do the same!

    Yeah I went down the whole chiro road. I regret that the most of all the things I've done to try and combat this pain! He said I had a 'subluxation' and it was 'probably' putting some pressure on my ribs. I got several adjustments and EVERYTIME I was hysterically crying after the session. I have yet to find anything that actually helps it, aside from lying in bed and being completley still, and not breathing haha! What side is yours on? Mine started in the left and that's where the breathing pain is still.. But I also have pain that's starting to radiate to the other side also. They didn't think yours was pleurisy?

    I was so happy to see I wasn't the only one dealing with the rib crap! I HATE feeling like some psychotic hypochondriac by thinking that any rib/chest pain just HAD to be serious.. But the pain I have that continues to get worse just doesn't make sense! How does yours feel? How long have you had it?
