My upper right ribcage hurts during hard exercise. Could you help me with this ?

hey i m a very successful highschool runner and i had the flu this year during my season so i missed a few meets but after i got over the flu i ran my first race back and i was feeling really good until i started breathing hard and then my upper right side like in the middle of my chest right under my ribcage really started hurting so i went to the doctor and they said it was probably inflammation of my pluera and gave me some meloxicam and i was feeling good for about a week then i was racing again and once i started breathing really hard about 2 miles into the race my right side started hurting bad again. its been about 3 months now and i can go on a 10 mile run and i feel fine but if i start running really hard and breathing hard then it starts hurting again and it slows my 3 mile time down by about 60 seconds. so if you could help i would really appreciate it. Thank you.

Hi.. May be you are overdoing and making it worse..  Inflammation take time to heal... It would a similar case.. The more you aggravate, the more time it would take to heal.. I would suggest you to stop putting pressure by running for the next one ar two months and then you may restart slowly.. And when you restart, start by running small distance and then slowly increasing the distance..
