I already have existing diagnosis DDD/DJD and several disc herniated but this NEW pain is like none before.

I simply awoke from bed and sat in a chair and all the sudden severe deep pain between my right rib and including the spine, an area about the size of a DVD, in line that you could follow from my belly button all the way around to this pain region.

I've tried my percocet, muscle relaxers, heat/cold packs, TENS units, nothing kills this pain except SLIGHT relief laying on the bed on my right side in the fetal position and not move from that spot.

Please, someone, anyone, what do you think this is? How can I help myself, relieve some pain??

Please help me.:(:confused:
