Pain in the ribs
Hi Doctor, I am suffering from a rib pain below the breast. The pain is more while pressing the ribs below the breast. I am sitting in the same posture and is used to operate my laptop while lying on the bed. Is this a sitting posture issue or do i need to consult a doctor?

Hi thanks for the query The pain is due to irritation of the muscle on the ribs. Initially it could be treated by exercises and some simple analgesics. If not subsiding I can give you local injection. Bad posture and lack of exercise is the cause.
