I am a 24 year old female. I began having pain on the right side of my body when I was about 7 years old. The pain is all in my right side. I have pain in my ribs (which is the worse), arm, wrist and my neck.
I went to many doctors in my life, and all of them thought I was trying to get attention because they could never find out what the problem was. Thank God for the internet, because I now know that I am not crazy and that it is all because of something gone wrong in my back.
I have very bad back pain, mostly upper part, but as a result of my constant pain, I have to lay in all kinds of possisions to get some kind of relief, and that seems to trigger more pain in my back.
Some nights I wake up with my legs (mostly the right side) burning like someone threw boiling water out on me! I also have pain in my right knee, but I have no idea if it is all related.
The pain in my ribs are driving me crazy. My chest, right under my right breast, and on the side of my body is totally numb. I never in my life thought all of this was because of nerves pinching.
Can someone please tell me what it is, and to which type of doctor I need to go for some help.
I live in the US at the moment.
