Hi. I've been trying to figure out what this pain Im having for the last 4 days might be. At first I thought my bra was too tight and that was causing it but I changed bras and even stopped wearing it as much as I could and it's just gotten worst. The pain is right under my right breast a little bit lower that reaches part of the ribs, goes to the side (like where your bra strap fits) and then to the back about 4 inches before the column it stops. What I feel is a combination of numbness, pain when I touch the skin and sensitiveness in some places. I've been reading and I've only found information on pregnant women, I am 100% im not pregnant so that is discarded. I know that if it persists I'll have to go to the dr. but in the meanwhile could anyone help me, do you know what this is or anyone else experimented it? thank you

  • I kept getting broken ribs, especially there. Found out I have osteoporosis...if it's not broken, get a mamogram.

  • Pain in the upper right quadrant that "wraps" around the back is most commonly caused by gallbladder problems. At least this is what I am being told. I have the same symptom, but no gallbladder problems as far as they can tell. You should get that checked out first anyhow...

I google gallbladder and looked at some pictures of where it is located and I think it might be right there! However the tenderness and soreness are the only symptons I feel from all of the list. How do you get gallbladder problems anyway? Thank you and If these persists I'll get it checked out

  • Did you ever figure out what this was? I have the exact same symptoms! Everything on the internet say that the pain could be gallstones but nothing about the numbness. I too left my bra off all day but it didn't work either. Please let me know if you figured this out.Hi. I've been trying to figure out what this pain Im having for the last 4 days might be.
