I recently experienced a sudden dull pain just below my right rib cage toward the bottom. After about 5 days of constant pain I went to the doctor and he said it was a pulled muscle.
After a few more days the pain seemed to subside. However, something still didn't seem right. I've been having trouble sleeping through the night lately.
ANyways today I happen to feel my right rib cage and it seems deformed. Half way down my rib cage it dents in and is different in shape then my left side. It seems slightly enflamed/swollen and tilts inward rather than outward. I found this alarming and haven't noticed anything like this.
I'm curious if anyone has any thoughts. I was searching around and didn't find too much information. It is a bit tender but the pain is gone.
Thanks in advance.
Rib Pain Question?
The right and the left side of the rib cage should feel different for males if I'm not mistaken. As for the swelling, I'm not sure except that it's caused from the pulled muscle.
