I am being plagued with vise-like muscle contractions around my rib cage & back. It is a crippling pain, and frightening, too.
I read something here about Costalchondritis, but need to check further.
The notes I saw were very old, and I'm wondering if anyone has found an answer?

  • My husband is basically paralyzed from spasms just under rib cage left side ab. If he moves at all, it spasms. After CAT scans diagnosis is ruptured ab muscles. Completely bed ridden, pain and relaxer meds have not helped yet. Am at wits end.
