Can someone help me? I was diagnosed with Pleurisy 8 months ago. Treated and all better in 3 months. Just gotten over flu. Coughed so hard felt tearing sensation in chest left side. Still feel pain on and off deep under left breast. Sometimes pain goes straight down in a line to abdomen and then stabbing pains in abdomen. Have had all tests, MRI, CAT, Mammogram, etc. No answers forthcoming. Pain last nite in abdomen so bad only fetal position helped. This morning dull pain in chest remains. I am 47, otherwise healthy. Excellent heart health (young heart I'm told). Exercise regularly and eat well. Non smoker. Could this be a mold thing? Lots of rain here lately. HELP????? Thanks for your time.
