Bone tenderness

If you press in on my ribs or most of my bones it feels as though you are touching a bruise. The pain lasts for a few minutes and then goes away. However this has been going on for a long time (6+ months). At first I only noticed it in my ribs but I did notice recently that it's just about any bone you can actually feel. I thought it could be poor posture but when I noticed it was widespread I kinda threw that thought out. I have had my ribs x-rayed and everything was normal.

Any ideas as to what could be causing the pain?

Oh my doctor suggested taking motrin but I don't like taking any med really. I don't even think it would make any sense because it's only when they are touched that it hurts.

  • In response to the bruising, I’ve been using this stuff on my kids for a while that’s been working great. They both play soccer so they get cuts and bruises on their legs often, not to mention they’re just generally rough when they play. I was reffered to this stuff called bruiseMD (you can find it through google) by another mother at school. The ingredients are all natural and it works quickly so it’s a great bruise remedy. Hope that helps!
