I recently starting having lower left side pain from the left side of my sturnum following my first lower left rib down to my left side. at my left side, the pain is real bad and it all started a week and a half ago after i did a two week stretch of real heavy lifting in my job. I am a heating and air conditioning service tech and changed out two roof top compressors in that time frame and roped all my equipment up through the roof hatch about 30 feet high and also lowered all my equipment and the compressors which weigh about 100 pounds.

I am in so much pain and it feels like my gut on my left side is vibrating and pulsing and the pain feels like my muscles are separated from my first lower rib. Can any one please tell me what this is and what the fix is. I had a normal ct scan and blood test and urine test. I am scheduled for a ultrasound on monday. I think it is more prominent when stand, walking , and lifting then if i am laying down. I ended up on morphine in the ER one week ago with stabbing pain it sent me to the floor.

Please email me with any answers that i can tell my doctor. This all started after two weeks of real hard and heavy work and lifting with my arms out in front of me to get the equipment over the edge of the roof hatch opening on the roof.

The Achillotrain has a viscoelastic heel-wedge to raise the heel for relief of Achilles tendon. A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
