Hi, So for over almost two weeks I have had pain in the right middle of my back and it started also on the right side of ribs under my arm pit to my hip. The past 4 days the left side of my ribs under my arm pit to my hip started to hurt also. The pain in my back is so sore to the touch, that it is impossible to touch it. The pain has remained constant and really sore. I also have very few small bouts with nausea and they have this far been so few that Its more of a new symptom and not typical. Also, I can feel giant knots in the spots on my back that are sore. The pain also at times mildly hurts with a deep breath.
