I've had it several times over the last 3 to 4 yrs. Normally flaring when it happens. Different durations every time. The worst case I had the left side of my ribcage moved out while the right side moved in, made everything including breathing hard to deal with. Meds never worked to ease the pain it would last as long as the inflammation was there. Heat did help me too. My docs seem to think it is more my fibro than the SLE but since both flare simultaneously who can say. Take it easy and this too shall pass with time. Sorry you're feeling so bad.
