To be or not to be???

I was sick for 8 weeks with a upper respiratory infection, but before that I had been sufferring with my gall bladder. Sometimes my gall bladder attacks go into my back. However, I started having weird pains in my back like between the ribcage felt like something swollen,and I could not lay on the side the pain was in. My doctor just treated my infection. Now 12 weeks later I am still sufferring, and Ibuprofen wreaks havoc on my stomach, but seems to help some. I am wondering if I have this problem. I don't have pain while upright, but if I turn or twist it hurts. My cough was very powerful when I was sick breaking those tiny vessel in my back and chest, so I think i developed this condition, but it is not in my chest it is in my back rib area, so any thoughts?????
