  • You could have Pluricy, which is an infection of the lining of the lung (s) You may need to see a Dr about it because it's treated with a special antibiotic. Take Tylenol or the equivalent for pain relief and make a Dr appt.

  • gas? has it been awhile since you pooped? those things can cause MAJOR problems and can even be backed up well into your rib cage. emberassing issue, but it's definitely an issue.

  • i have been gassy but it dosnt make it feel better when i can relieve me self and its usually a day or two between bowel movements. i have no idea what it is he say it could be just the muscles being stressed or the cartilage in my ribs being irritated i just want the pain to stop =[

  • I would consult your doctor and see if they want you to come in and be seen or not it could be nothing or it could be something serious
