Hi, for the last week I have been suffering from extreme side pain. It tends to happen while I am eating or drinking fluids. The pain is right below my left breast to the side. It is sharp throbing pain which makes it difficult for me to breath. I have to take very shallow breaths in order to breath. If I take deep breaths while this episode is happening, the pain increases. Another thing that happens while I am experiencing side pain is throbbing on my left shoulder/arm. My arm gets a little numb, but yet is in pain. I am really worried. Could it be my spleen or a kidney infection? Help please!
