left shoulder pain hurts to take a breathe?

I have been sick for 3 weeks now. first it was a sinus infection then turned into a bad cold. i am on antibodities now. but for the past 4 days now i am getting very bad left shoulder pain and chest pain. i can't take a deep breathe if i do i want to scream. I am wondering if i should get this check out or just see if it goes away.
thank you

Re: left shoulder pain hurts to take a breathe?

I think you should take your temperature for Sunday about three times (make sure once is in the evening) and call your doctor Monday morning. If things get any worse Sunday with your breathing, go to urgent care or ER. If you have a fever over 102, take tylenol for it and tell the doctor on Monday. If you cough up phlegm take a good look at it to see what color it is and if it has any red in it. Rest as much as you can Sunday (dont go to church as you will infect others) and drink lots and lots of fluids (unless your doctor has told you to restrict fluids). Any doubts about the pain getting worse or difficulty breathing Sunday-get to the urgent care or ER.
