Back pain and tender nodules under rib cage

I hope someone can give me an idea what might be going on with me.
I have had pain in my back under my ribs on my left side for a long time ( probs a year or so) on and off only when in bed. Recently this has started to get worse and if i am laying in bed for more than approx 5 hours it hurts really bad to take a deep breath ( only on the left side) It would go away during the day. Now it has started to get worse and it has been there all day today, more just uncomfortable than when I take a deep breath. I have noticed i have some small tender lumps along the edge of my ribcage on that side,( sort of like nodules). I have them here and there on my body, you can"t see them just feel them and they are tender to touch. I have also noticed I get wheezy on and off now ( even when it doesnt hurt) and I get very breathless when I do anything. I have gained weight also. (I have put of me being breathless to being overweight and unfit) I am now starting to get worried. Does anyone have any idea what this could be?
