I'm 30 years old, diagnosed with Scoliosis at 25. I'm assuming my pain is caused by the curve in my spin.
I kid you not, for the last 15 years of my life my sleep has been disrupted by strong pain only in my left rib cage. Never, ever my right side.
As of lately, it's beginning to occur every single night which is greatly affecting my quality of sleep, and quality of life.
It used to help shoving a blanket or towel underneath my rib cage (either side), but that is no longer helping.
I've had 2 sets of x-rays taken to try and determine what's happening, but the issue is that during the day (when I had the x-rays done) I am in no pain. It seems to disappear the moment I'm upright. So the doctors found nothing.
I've searched the web many, many times as well and have yet to find someone else experiencing the same thing as me. I'm very frustrated and feeling at a loss.
Has anyone out there experienced this? What is it? How do I take back control of my sleep?
