Getting pain in ribs and shoulder. Hurts while breathing and coughing. Any relief?

I have a pain that on the right side of my rib that hurts when I breathe or cough and mostly if I sneeze or exert too much pressure in the breathing process. It feels kind of like a bubble sitting in there. It has also spread to my lower shoulder . The shoulder doesn t hurt when I breathe but just a constant pain (still feels like a bubble of some sort)

Hi there ~

Having painful respirations (either breathing or coughing) is a sign of a condition called costochondritis. It is a treatable condition and is relieved by most over the counter pain killers. You may also experience relief by sleeping on the side that does not hurt. You will experience relief within 2-3 days, so please do not panic.

I hope this helps. Take care and have a nice day !
