Rib pain is any sort of pain in, around, or under the ribs, particularly dull, throbbing, or cutting pains. Rib pain should be examined by a doctor if it doesn't go away fast, especially if it's accompanied by chest pains or difficulty breathing. In this situation, seek immediate medical care: it could be a sign of a life-threatening condition like a heart attack.
- Rib pain can be caused by a variety of factors, including rib fractures, muscle strains, costochondritis (inflammation of the cartilage connecting the ribs to the breastbone), and lung problems such as pneumonia or pleurisy (inflammation of the lining around the lungs).
