Dear lybrateuser, - Your pain could be due to bony or soft tissue problem - do hot fomentation three times a day - apply pain relief gel three times a day - if still no relief then take pain relief tablet after meals 2-3 times a day - avoid sleeping on left side as pressure may increase pain - get an x- ray chest done to rule out any other problem, consult a doctor.

Extension Exercises x 15 times x twice daily - lying on tummy, take left arm up for 3 seconds, then bring it down, right arm up for 3 seconds, bring down. Bring right leg up, hold for 3 seconds, bring it down. Then right leg up and hold for 3 seconds and bring it down. Repeat twice a day- 10 times.

Do hot fomentation. Take vit d3 supplements and avoid sleeping that side.
