Many years ago I discovered my lower rib on my left side moves independently to the rest when I breathe in and out. After sitting for a while (especially if not sat with good posture) this became painful. The pain only increased as the years progressed but when I saw my GP they dismissed it (likely due to my youth) and gave me pain relief. I was told that the pain should subside within a week or two yet I failed to see how tablets could cure the actual injury. I'm worried that I'm being overlooked by my GP and that the pain is due to the bone itself moving rather than bruising or something more minor that the GP suggested. It is impossible to get another GP appointment due to the complicated booking system and demand so I'm left a little stuck as of what to do.
