i had a three level fusion in my neck,six months after that i was in a car accident that is causing a lot of problems for me,my ribs have been hurting every since,i'm slouching all the time cause it hurts to sit straight and i have an awful pain going into my stomach right where the ribs go together. i feel like a big band is going around me from front to back squeezing my rib area. only had x-rays so far that didn't show anything,waiting to see my doc. to have an mri done.i did have a herniation in that area a few years ago that was touching the sac around my spinal cord but who knows what happened to it during the accident. does anyone else have this sort of pain in there thoracic area?
