Has this happened to you?

I've had a cold for the past week and now it's hard to breath and I have pain in my ribcage right below my left breast. Its a sharp feeling. It hurt the same way to cough or sneeze as it did with my c-section, only it was in my chest. A part of me wants to get it looked at but another wants me to just blow it off and hope it gets better. I have two long days of work and I reaaaally don't want to be late or miss.

  • If it is difficult to breathe and you have a sharp pain you could be looking at bronchial induced asthma or pneumonia.
    I'm sorry sweetie, but you should really see the doctor and not blow this off.
    I know work is very important, but your health is more important.

  • Swine Flu is going around and shouldn't be taken lightly... go get it checked out.
