Hi, i recently went to the hospital for an ongoing pain i've had in my back and sometimes side, on the right side somewhere in my ribs. It's not "my back" that hurts, it's in my back ya know? So, i was kind of upset when they sent me home with a paper that read "chest wall pain" and a prescription for muscle relaxers. I've been reading up on kidney stones because i am a frequent eater of pepper and other spicy foods and everyone is complaining of stomach pain. It's been five weeks and the pain has gotten to the point where i cannot do any strenuous activity, it hurts worse when im moving around, but its a pain "inside". Can anyone help?
