I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Does the pain radiate to your front of the chest?
Do you have any shortness of breath?
no ,is only in that particular spot ..if i try to touch the soft spot below (kidney area )i dont feel any pain .i assume the pain is right on the last rib .but it is not on the major rib cage ,feels like another rib cage just below the major one .
do you notice any swelling?
my sensation is that ther is a nerve or cartilage in that particular spot
Ay history of injury there?
Anything metallic pressing on the spot?
could massage have provoked it ?
yes that is likely.
Or straining the area by bending or lifting heavy weight.
Not likely kidney related since no other symptoms.
that is reassuring.
just for the rekord ,i was diagnosed with a left adenoma 2-3 years ago .any possibility could be related ?
left adenoma in the kidney?
no that should not cause such a localized pain.
The pain will be more vague and radiating to the groin.
wath should i do ?
i dont mind the little pain
it is normal that it is not going away ?
can get worst if no treated
have you tried any thing yet?
not at all
should not worsen over time.
But will get better.
You can try topical diclofenac gel which requires prescription.
as i said i dont mind the the little pain on touch
Capsaicin gel is another option which is over the counter.
I do not think this is concerning
could the pain remain the same for long time (i dont mind )
Yes it can due to the constant use of the muscle --the healing may be delayed.
not main concern you think
not at all.
nothing from inside my body that could affect that area
ok .i appreciate your help .you been very helpful
Do not worry
i feel my opinion to be right .tanks again
have a nice rest of the day
