Sharp pain under the rib cage, nausea, fatigue. Diagnosed with lung inflammation and flu. Stabbing pain persisting

Hi there, for the past few weeks I have been having sharp pains under the rib cage on my left side, I have also had nausea and constantly feel run down. When I went to the doctors he put it down to inflammation in the lung and the flu but it just does not seem to go away, the pain is not there all the time nor the nausea, it like a sharp stabbing pain that comes and goes. Thanks you

Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern, if this is really inflammation of lungs then this could be bronchitis either viral or allergic, if I would be your doctor then I would treat such case with the following medicines
1) Tab Acetaminophen one tab three times in day
2) Tab Codeine tab three times in day
such condition takes little more time to come around, hope this information helps you have a good day.
