Severe Back Pain

I have severe pain in area in my ribs halfway up my back to the right of my spine and only on my right side. Could this be something else other than a muscle strain? It hurts to move my body and I could feel it when I take a deep breath.

Hello.

Sorry, but it is both impossible and against the rules in all WebMD communities to offer any type of diagnosis or medical advice. You need to see your doctor for evaluation and treatment.

These communities no longer have moderators. The members are expected to inform others of the rules and policies. I am simply informing you of the facts.

Hi ,
I am sorry for you that you are experiencing all this pain ,I also suffer from chronic neck and back pain!Sometimes it just helps to share with others who can relate!But we cannot take the place of a Dr.!
So go see your Dr. and hopefully he can help with meds or whatever!
God be with you , 77 grace

Thank you for your post. You should see you doctor about this. The symptoms you describe could arise from a number of different propblems. An clinical exam and perhaps imaging may be neccesary to define a clear diagnosis for you. Good luck!
