Right rib pain

Hi all,

Ive been having pain for the past 6 years. It comes and goes. It feels like my right lower rib. It hurts to lean on my right lower side but it is inconsistant. Sometimes it bothers me and sometimes it doesn’t. I always say its my “floating rib”. Its sensitive. Leaning back while sitting sometimes i have to adjust so Im leaning more on my l left side. It has been so long but figured I should look into it. Sometimes it radiates to the front part of my right rib area. Im a healthy 29 year old. I work out 4xweek and eat pretty well. Im 5’8 and 135lbs. Is this normal? I assumed that i hurt my rib at some point and it did not heal/ is sensitive now. But the more time goes on, the more i wonder if this is normal or something i should be concerned with. Thanks!

It sounds like something worth looking into, especially as you've had it so long and looks like it may not go away on its own. I shouldn't think it's anything to worry about right now but things like this can sometimes become worse if you leave them for too long.
