Re: pain below ribcage

i've had this problem a few times. at first it was pluerasy (sp), this is when certain glands in the lungs are irritated or infected.

the second time i had the pain, it was from blood clots that moved to my lungs after i had surgery.

both of these problems are very different, but give the same kind of discomfort. i don't know if you have either, but the way you describe it, sounds like it might be some kind of lung problem.

you should definitly have it checked out if it gets bad or doesn't go away, they'll need to take an x-ray of your chest or maybe even an.. MRI? i think it is..
