Hi there I had experienced pain in my rib on the right side intermittently over the past 7 odd years.
On many occasions where for whatever reason when I have tensed the upper abdomen region, something has popped out. There has been a visable lump many times when has this has occured. This is usually quiet painful until this lump subsides.
It has occured less over the past couple years as I no to avoid tensing that region. However I have found over the past 3-4 months that it aches when in sitting positions, at work or driving etc.
I have felt like at times it's a cracked rib but I no it's not and have never suffered any injury to area.
I have also thought muscle hernia, really not sure though.
Any ideas and has anyone experienced symptoms similar to these.
