Chest/rib Pain

Chest/rib Pain

Does anyone else have pain that's more in their ribs? Mine is on the right side towards my back. Almost under my armpit but lower. It is what caused my dr to test me for lupus because she thought it could be pleurisy. I get pain in the front of my chest too, mainly right in the center on the breastbone, but I've had this constant rib pain for over a year. Anyone else experience this?
