is your pain in the rib bone or below the rib?
how old are you?
are you male or female?
on a scale from 0-10, how intense is the pain?
you could have a pinched nerve in your mid back which can pinch the interacostal nerve which travels along the rib
an MRI scan of your thoracic spine can check for pinched nerves exiting the spine.
it doesn't sound like you have had an MRI scan yet.
