Re: sharp pain in left side rib cage below breast, as well as pain in spot in back di
Do you think it could be possible you MAY have broken a rib, by coughing?
Unfortunatly they dont do much for broken ribs, but knowing thats what it is you would at least know. I've had 2 broken ribs(not from coughing) and they are extreamly painful! I went through 9 weeks of recovery, and on CT scan at that point showed they were still "healing".
Or perhaps you MAY have developed a pnemonia? Are you still sick and coughing?
It's hard to say, but maybe you should get a chest x-ray, just to be sure?
I sure hope you get some sort of relief soon!
God bless, and take care,
