I started off with a bad cough, sputum, noise drainage..ect... My cough was so bad that I had coughing spells... One day I was coughing and all of a sudden a sharp pain on the left side of my body right where the ribs meet. It was sooo painful it hurt to walk, breathe, or even sit still. They put me on vicadin... it only took an edge off. They did a urine test for kidneys and a xray. Nothing found. Since then I was still coughing.. the other side of my ribs started hurting.. not as severe. finally my cold has gone - it has been 2 weeks since the pain started. The pain is still there. It is tender to the touch as well as movement. It has been at least a week since my cold has been gone so the coughing isn't there to aggravate it more. It feels like someone is sitting on my sides. Any ideas?
