Reoccurring rib pain

Hi everyone.

I was hoping someone could help.

During my 2nd pregnancy 6 years ago, my lower left ribs at the front were very tender to touch and were quite painful.

Iv noticed that when I get a cough I get severe pain in the same area in my ribs.

I saw a Dr around 2 years ago when I was in pain and he said it was sprained ribs. I have developed a cough again and this time I cant sit back or lie down without being in agony.
It feels a little different now though as it hurts with my pulse. I can feel it in my ribs and get instant pulsating pains in my ribs.

I can lean forward without pain but that's about it.
It hurts to turn, drive, stand up and walk.

Has anyone experienced this or have any idea what it could be?

Thank you for taking the time to read this and hopefully someone can advise me on anything I can do

Re: Reoccurring rib pain


sorry to see that no one has come back to you yet regarding the post that you have left.

Unfortunately, we at talkhealth are unable to offer any specific medical advice but would suggest that if you are still concerned that you go back to the GP to get it checked out.

Hope that this helps, please do let us know how you get on.
