My rib touches my hip bone

When I lift a side of my hip upward and keep my upper body the same, it feels like the bottom of my ribs are pushed against by my hip bone. When you do this, do you get the same thing? Maybe my upper body is just really short. When I feel the lowest rib I can, it's REALLY close to my hip.

Scoliosis?

I have it and one side is easier to bend then the other. One hip is up higher and my body leans to the left. Have someone to trace your spine and see if it curves. Then, see a doctor and get a X-ray. Depending on the curvature, you may or may not have to get surgery. Anything over 40 degrees surgery will be needed. I think 20 and below is usually treated with a brace, but sometimes also surgery.

Good Luck!

I think that's normal. Unless I'm not getting your question correctly.

Maybe for a midget.

It sounds as if you may have a skeletal condition. Is it painful?

It hurts a bit when I lift my hip up and it pushes on my rib. A dull ache.

There's a picture of it. The top circle is where the bottom of my rib is, and the bottom is my hip bone. It looks normal from the exterior, but I don't know.

me mum has this issue and was told by her doc that that was the cause of her pain--the bottom of her rib was actually rubbing the top of her hip bone or some such thing. he told her not to sit upright but lean back when she sits so that gravity doesn't do its thing and make it worse.

I have the same problem and have wondered the same thing. I have no answers though sorry. There is hardly space between the end of my rib cage and my hip bone. If i bend too much they rub and hurt. I always wondered why in gym class it hurt for me to do certain things. I know why now. Just today I accidentally bent too far backwards and now my rib hurts. It's really annoying for me cuz I have no waist. The smallest part of my waist is actually my ribs. The space between my lowest rib and hip is the width of my thumb.
