I have SLE and raynauds, connective tissues disease and myositis.
In February, I sneezed and something happend and I thought I'd put my back out. I couldn't move for three days, or take a deep breath without a shooting pain on my ribs and back. It went off a bit but the last 2 weeks it's back with vengeance. It's only on my left side, and runs from my lower ribcage (where it joins the middle of my chest) all the way round and up my back into my shoulder. I can't yawn or take deep breaths without the shooting pain, and also turning to check blind spot when I'm driving that kind of movement really hurts. When I first did it the consultant said probs intercostal muscle strain. Wouldn't this of healed by now? Any suggestions?! Or excercises/treatment to help it? Thanks!
