Rib Pain

If any of you suffer rib rib pain, burning I wondered how you deal with it? How bad is it? I have it real bad, it gets terrible if I sweep, vacuum etc. or standing at the kitchen counter working. I don't know what to do for it. I take ibuprofen. I am on Cosentyx. Thanks!

    1. Thanks Jill, I will check it out.

      1. Hi , I recently damaged my ribs falling off my bike whilst on a very short bike ride for some fresh air. (Wheel slipped on mud) It’s been 3 months and I still cannot really lie on my right side.
        Before the fall I did not really have a lot of problems from my ribs but I suspect I will have in the future.
        I try not to lift from standing or whilst twisted now as it seems very easy to tweak them again and put their slow recovery back a bit.
        I find the most comfortable position I can to sit or sleep and try to stay there. Easier said than done I know.
        Hope you get some relief and that it calms down for you in the future.
        Take care

        1. Thank you, hoping so too. Sorry you hurt your ribs falling off by me. Sounds nasty. I hope you feel better eventually, take it easy. But, yes easier said than done. I fractured some ribs years ago from pulling up plants, so who knows. Take care, thanks again.
