Cramping in rib cage

I was surprised to see the article on people with COPD experiencing cramps in the rib cage. I’ve been having these cramps in my upper rib cage for over a year now and my primary care couldn’t explain why. My Ob-gyn even did an ultrasound of the area and found nothing unusual. I never associated it with COPD, so I never mentioned it to my pulmonologist. I will discuss this at my appointment later this month.
It’s good to know that these cramps are probably associated with my COPD. I sure hope that soon there will be a treatment for it because they are very painful and debilitating.
