A few tests:
1. Turn your head first to the left, look up, then to the right, look up, and tell me exactly what you feel.

2. Run your finger tips down the joints between the ribs and your sternum. Very tender? Lump? Where?

3. Lie on your tum, and ask someone to pressure really quite firmly quite close to the spine, starting high up near the neck, and run down to the lower ribs. Really sore or tender?

4. When you have breathing pain, where does it hurt?

Specific answers please. On a computer rather than a cellphone.

Hello Andy,
I'm afraid it's not clear to me what the problem is; and of course I can't examine you.

The walking pain - deeper breathing - suggests the possibility of a rib subluxation, but the back of throat and top of lung area pain doesn't fit with that.

Bony spurs at your age are probably a normal finding - you certainly had them before this all started - but may indicate the area of the problem.

This doesn't quite fit with cervical stenosis or disc injury in the neck either; my best thought are to take your MRI and consult a local experienced chiropractor before going for surgery. Sorry not to be of more help.

Let me know what transpires.
