Does anyone have a solution for this type of rib cage pain? I go to a neurologist for trigger point injections (only 2 at a time at 300 dollars each). They last a short time. He suggests a more invasive intercostal nerve block which scares me for fear of a puncture to the lungs. Two weeks ago I had shots only to find out a few days later, this minor procedure had collapsed my lung!! I ended up in surgery for a chest tube. I'm at my wit's end for pain relief. I go to a pain clinic for steriod shots in my neck once or twice a year from scar tisue that presses on a nerve caused by two disc replacement surgeries in my neck. You would think that is where I would find help, but they sent me to further doctors, and five later I end up where I am now. I also have nerve pain down my legs and feet from sciatic nerves that flare up from time to time. Luckily it is calm at the moment. I have been tested for MS to see if all these nerve issues are related, but they did not find that they are. Three seperate issues. The one that is giving me the most trouble at the time is this intercostal one. Any solutions?????Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
