Hi I was a healthy 31 year old male until last September. I thought I was just having some bad luck and unusually incidents, but now I am starting to worry. Just this evening I fractured 2 ribs without reason. A friend was playing around and faked like he was going to strike me in the stomach. I flinched (natural reaction) and fractured 2 ribs. This is the fourth time I have fractured ribs in just over 6 months, I have not been without rib pain during this time. I have also felt multiple pops around my strenum without do cause leaving me with weeks of pain and swelling. Just last week I was feeling much less pain then I had in some time so I was doing some light stretching and was struck with sever pain along my sterum. My doc states he ran blood test to check for potential causes. Levels that would indicate cancer and calcium, phosphorous along with a CBC.. everything was normal. Up until the time of my first rib fractures (from coughing) I was doing Yoga, swimming and working out 3-5 days a week. I have trouble getting out of bed and struggle to perform at work. Does anyone have any thoughts or ideas of what I should do or ask my PMD to do/test for next. My health insurance is through an HMO and would like to help direct my care so I don't get passed on or over by a overworked MD. Thanks, ScottReply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
