I have had an ongoing battle with pain on the left rib. It at times feels like something is stabbing me there and at times there is an ache to it that won't go away. My internist thinks that it is my spleen but somehow I just don't believe that to be so.

I have often wondered if it might be related to the curvature in my back due to scoliosis. About a year after my injury, I noticed the tendency to slide to the left side and some x-rays were taken. The ortho who saw me that time said my spine was almost like an "S" with the scoliosis. I had no pain at time but it started bothering me more and more with time.

Does anyone have this problem?

I would surely like to know what is causing it and what can be done to alleviate it. Thanks for any input.
