I'm having this severe pain at upper left lateral abdomen (under my left breast, rib area) for almost a week. I was having coughs last week, although it's getting better now. Everytime when I move or cough it hurts really bad. How can I ease the pain? Help me.... :eek:

  • Hi ygome1,First thought? You may have gotten a bad muscle strain from coughing last week.Try an anti-inflammatory like aleve or ibuprofen which would be better than a pain killer if it is a muscle problem.If it gets worse, or doesn't get better, see a doctor.Best,Shula
