I've had this condition for over 3 years. Tried anti inflammatory medications, diet changes and nothing helps.

Just wondering if anyone has insight, or perhaps suffers with this condition themselves?
There is something irritating my left rib and I've been searching for answers way to long. :mad: The pain is just excruciating.......

Any input no matter how small you think, might just help me

  • I've been diagnosed with this recently. I find I have abnormal gait like I'm walking like a baby very flat footed and can't walk far before my rib age and back ceases up it was really bad when lying down and walking and uncomfortable when sitting like a pressure ake under my ribs I am worried if I have been diagnosed wrong does these symptoms sound similar to yours I have been this way for over a month now and fed up. Dicofenac is what I have and it's helping. I find bed rest helps sort of though it's uncomfortable font do much and you won't irritate it but I try small short walks. Also if a position becomes unbearable like sitting stand up for a bit it sort of helps me .
