I am 50 years old, and I have severe rib and upper back pain that started 5 months ago. This started on my right side in my lower rib , but now has gone over to my left side aswell. Since this started I have seen my gp constantly and have even been to a+e out of desperation. My gp keeps telling me that all my blood tests are fine, and that it is probably due to a trapped nerve or a ligament problem, although when I paid to see a private consultant he seem's to think it isn't but still cannot tell me what is causing the pain. I had jaundice about 3 years ago for no reason as far as I know, and it just went after a few days, could this be connected? I keep feeling very feverish and sweaty. I have had ulcerative colitis for 12 years and an auto immune disorder. Going out of my mind with worry, can anyone help or give any advise.
