week I have never coughed so hard in my life. But when the cough went away I was left with severe pain right under my breast on my left side in my ribs. Initally I thought is was a bruised rib or even possibly pleurecy but because I just lost my insurance coverage I am waiting for my new insurance to kick in. Well the severe pain is now gone but now it feels as though its under my shoulder blade and goes down into the back of my rib cage. I feel a knot under my shoulder blade but in certain positions it almost feels like I can feel a muscle contracting in my ribs I can actually feel it when I put my hand on the left side of my ribs. I am starting to panic a little and I cant get into the Dr until July. Any advice would be greatly appreciated..
Thank you
