Does anyone have an idea of what these lumps on my ribcage are?

Posted by RaeSae

I am an 18 y/o female who was diagnosed with lupus four years ago. I have always had pain in my left rib; but I just wrote it off as being part of Fibromyalgia. A month ago I noticed that I have about five bumps(maybe the size of a dime) on my ribcage under my skin. They are very painful to touch; and I have intense pain in my left rib. Now I notice that they are spreading to my right ribcage. I was wondering if this is a symptom of Lupus and if anyone else has had anything similar to this. (I have been to a doctor; but my doctor didn't know what to do.)

Check out costochondritis, sounds similar. I hope you get some relief.
