Does anyone get a silly crampy thing under your ribs? Like something got stuck?

Everytime I get this people look at me like I'm mad

A stitch, you mean?

KatyMac Sun 14-Dec-14 22:43:45

I don't think so - I get a stitch at the side if I run--or walk fast--

This is in the centre and happens if I stretch or move awkwardly

I get this. Hurts when you breath and you have to breath really shallow.

WottaMess Sun 14-Dec-14 22:47:50

Feels like your plural membrane has got pinched between your ribs? Yup.

KatyMac Sun 14-Dec-14 22:48:14

too busy thinking about pain to breath maybe - it feels like you got a bit of inside trapped between your ribs and something else

KatyMac Sun 14-Dec-14 22:49:04

Maybe trapped between my ribs & my diaphragm?

BumgrapesofWrath Sun 14-Dec-14 22:49:04

I got this early on today when I bent over!

callamia Sun 14-Dec-14 23:05:19

Yes! It's intercostal neuralgia or something. Me, my bother and my mum all get it,

Ahh, so that's what it is! I thought maybe a bit of my stomach hsd got hooked on my ribs during pregnancy (I have only a hazy understanding of human anatomy).

Have you got any other symptoms, body niggles, anything?

Cataline Sun 14-Dec-14 23:22:59

I get this too! Thought I was the only one grin

Cluffyflump Sun 14-Dec-14 23:26:27

I get this!
Watching with interest.

KatyMac Mon 15-Dec-14 07:41:22

What are body niggles? I almost certainly have them, hypochondriac alert wink

Yes I first noticed it in pregnancy I think - but DD is 17!

NoelleHawthorne Mon 15-Dec-14 07:56:47

i get rib cramp about once a week, normally in the bath

PoppySausage Mon 15-Dec-14 08:04:51

I get this too!

chariotsofire Mon 15-Dec-14 08:09:21

Is it a twingey feeling like cramp?

I get something that sounds a bit like this, usually if I bend to far to the right (it is on the right hand side).

The skin almost feels numb as the feeling is between the ribs.

I get this too... it hurts to breathe but if you're brave and do a massive long breath in then it goes, like stretching out any cramps.

OatcakeCravings Mon 15-Dec-14 08:39:19

I get this, lots. When I was a child my Mum asked the doctor about it and he said it was a trapped muscle.

NanTheWiser Mon 15-Dec-14 11:29:58

Hiatus hernia?

HouseAtreides Mon 15-Dec-14 11:53:17

Yes! Bloody horrible! Feels like you need to reach inside and unhook something.

DoesntLeftoverTurkeySoupDragOn Mon 15-Dec-14 11:55:42

Yes! I thought this was just me and I was totally nuts or dying of something nasty. I've had it pop up unexpectedly for years and it is exactly like my lung is stuck to my ribs as it hurts to breathe in or out.

mawinter Mon 15-Dec-14 15:29:30

Yup, get it often and I hate it!

Norfolknway Mon 15-Dec-14 15:46:21

I get this too!

shallow breathing're brave enough to breathe it out!! I thought I was alone x

I get this too, it scares me, but it does go away.
