intense side pain from coughing... what should i do?
i have been sick for about 2 weeks now... went to the doctor and they told me it was probably the flu. anyway, ive recovered from everything except an intense cough that brings up mucus. i haven't slept in nights, but my real concern is that it seems from all my coughing i've contracted really sharp side pain, on both sides. it feels like its at the very bottom of my ribcage, and it's very sore and tender to touch. It has become hard to breath even when doing simple activities like walking. my side rib pain has reall escalted in the past couple days... what can i take? should i go see someone? thanks for any help
