I am a 24 year old female. Woke up a week ago with a severe pain on my left side under my ribs front and back . Seems tender to touch , pressure and swollen inside. Moderate lower back pain accompanied with a constant nagging headache . Hurts to lay down , sit upright, and stand . Hurts to hiccup and sneeze . Pain has not lessened at all since it began only intensified. What could this be ?!

Because the pain is aggravated by movements, positions, hiccups and cough.

1. Rest
2. Analgesics
