I am a 46 year old relatively healthy and active female. Had sudden onset of severe mid back and rib pain on right side. 2 1/2 weeks. am beginning to improve with 2nd round of medril dose pack. Pain is severe with sitting. had ct scan to rule out kidney stone. had MRI of lumbar spine and was told that the pain is due to herniated disc at L4-5, and arthritis. However, the pain is in the middle of my back, not lower, and in the ribs on the right side. It is now better when resting, but sitting agravates it severly. I have not been able to work, drive, etc. for 2 1/2 weeks. When I try sitting, it comes right back. Was I diagnosed correctly?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
