Patient :I have had a pain in my side/lower rib since i was around 15, im now 19. The pain comes and goes, gets worse in cold weather, i cant lay on it for very long and the pain is just agonising. Nothing has happened out of the ordinary for me to have this pain. I consulted my gp about it a year ago, they sent me for an ultrasound but couldnt find anything wrong. I have passed out from the pain before but my gp is apparently unable to help me. Do you know what this could be?
