In 1989 I was living in the mountains of Colorado when I started to develope a deep pain under my right rib cage. I soon had flu like symptoms for a bout a week that eventually went away, but the pain has persisted and spread throughout my entire upper body. It is an aching pain that I can only describe as like a toothache. It is mainly on my right side, but radiates to my upper back and shoulder blade areas. I have had all the tests which detected early stages of COPD, and they also found small masses ( nodules) that they are concerned about, and are monitoring. My problem is they cannot explain the pain. It has consumed my life. I have been on all the pain meds available, but I have decided that I do not wish to carry on managing my pain with pills and patches. Is there anyone with the same symptoms on this forum.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
