Hi, Im looking for some answers as to why my ribs have grown to be considerably risen on the right side, It doesn't hurt much normally, but I have difficulty sleeping as my ribs stick out a lot when I lay on my side and is painful. I have had back problems in the past I dont know if this is related or not, my doctor said 'dont worry about it', but I am worried, as my ribs havent always been like this and it appears to be getting worse.

  • This sounds a lot like scoliosis, this is an abnormal sideways curvature of the spine, doctors often say don't worry about it even though it commonly associated with back pain, are your shoulders uneven when you view yourself in the mirror?
