24 yr old female/ slender. MVP and arrythmias otherwise healthy.
I had pain about 2 years ago in my lower left rib and that how I noticed that it was actually sticking out/swollen. About a week or two later I went to the E.R because it hurt so bad I could hardly walk. The doctor was ready to leave for the day and said "oh, its just they way you're shaped". I was shocked that she could be so ignorant. I bathe this body everyday I would now if thats "just the way" I'm shaped. And WHY does it hurt. I left and it's been hurting off and on ever since with the "sticking out" remaining the same. I don't really want to see someone else just to be made a fool of again. Does anyone have any ideas? Could a swollen spleen or adrenal gland cause the rib to protrude and hurt? Oh, and I have had chostochodritis before but that is sternum pain, I dont think it goes this low...
