The only symptom I have is when I cough or sneeze (which is quickly breathing out) I have a very sharp stabbing pain about 1 inch below my right breast. The area is very sensitive to touch as well in about a 2 square inch area. There is no problem with deep breathing in or in moving my arms in any direction. I had no pain in doing exercises at the health club using machines to strengthen my top - I began going about a month ago and am using very light weights. I do have mild chronic cough for about the past 10 years. My bone scans show I do not have thin bones from disease. I am 60 years old female.
After a week there is no change in the pain. Doctor is guessing a muscle strain/pull. It is so painful I think a cracked rib but had no trauma. And general movement is fine. The pain is right above my liver, so wonder if anything else is going on.
