Has Anyone Experienced Pain And Tightness Around The Rib Cage As A Symptom?

Almost daily, I have a feeling of tightness around my lower ribs, like someone has a band Around them and keeps tightening it. The area also feels numb. Has anyone elseexperienced this?

Have had some bloating where I have used two tablespoons of Pepto and two tablets of GasEx and that seems to relieve it after about an hour. Also eat smaller portions and that seems to help as well.

My partner also experiences this. He says it sometimes feels hard to yawn or take a deeper relaxing breath. We have tried light massage in the upper belly and it seems to offer a little relief for him.

Taking Zooey’s injections, but to control the lesions we need to get the myeloma under control. Still working on that.
