1 Answer:

Hello, Suci Setiyani. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.


First of all, we need to ask a few questions regarding your complaint. Since when did the complaint take place? What do you feel like the pain, is it sharp like being stabbed, or blunt like a heavy burden? Does the pain in the rib cage spread to other parts? How heavy is the intensity of pain felt? Is there anything that can ease the pain? Are complaints of back pain accompanied by shortness of breath? Have you ever experienced mechanical trauma (for example: falls, accidents) not long before a complaint appeared?


Unfortunately we do not have limited access so we cannot do a physical examination directly. Pain in the back ribs can be caused by several possibilities, such as mechanical trauma, disorders of the spinal cord, lung infection that causes fluid accumulation in the chest cavity, and psychosomatic.


We advise you to see a doctor directly. The doctor will take an history to obtain more complete information about the history of the disease, physical examination, and supporting examinations if there are indications, such as x-rays. At home, you can use over-the-counter pain relievers, such as paracetamol, at doses according to the rules of use stated on the drug packaging.


Thus information from us. Hopefully always healthy. May be useful.
