About me

Hello,. I have been reading posts about pain.  I also have intercostal rib pain, and foot pain.  Very debilitating.  I am seeking treatment with a pain management doc.  Nothing has helped.  Also doing massage therapy and acupuncture.  Not sure if these are working.  My MRI shows multiple issues at every level of my spine.  


  • hello, k9er!

    i don't like to assume things, but does your username mean you're a dog lover or breeder?  if so, do you have a favorite?

    i am sorry to hear of your suffering.  i do not know much about "intercostal rib" pain, but from the way you wrote about it, it seems like a very hard situation with which to cope.  i am hoping you will, at the very least, find some understanding and support here on these forums!!

    You mentioned you have spinal issues at every level.

    I have severe rib cage pain...including upper ribcage and under arms!
    That was among my first symptoms..and is better managed but still bothersome today.
    My pain management Doctor explained it is from my thoracic issues.

    Prior to,treatment from PM doctor, I would soak in a hot tub about 12 times a day..trying for any relief.
    Am glad my water bill included in the rent.
