Pretty much how the title describes it. Painful, stabbing type feeling below my ribs on both sides. Starts off a dull ache but becomes more intense. Gradually works it way up to chest area. Slight shortness of breath when most painful, though that might just be me panicing a bit. Lasts about 20minutes or so... Freaked me out a bit, thought I'd get some opinions.

  • hi, i havent got any answers sorry, but im getting the same pain. on thrusday i woke up with a fever and i was sweating and cramping and sick all day aswell as an intense stabbing on my bottom couple of ribs on my right side. the next day the fever and cramping were gona and i felt much better but this pain in my side was worse, stabbing suddenly every time id inhale or sob or move. today its not such a stabbing but a restricted sore aching mostly across my whole chest and back but still centred on those right side ribs, i cant breathe deeply, im trying to find an osteopath in india :S any ideas?
