Hello Dear,

Welcome here on healthcaremagic dot com a site for solving your health problem online by qualified healthcare professional.

I am very much concerned with your problem and certainly will guide you how to get rid of these.

In my view

Your pain can not be left as such you have to get it evaluated by a physical examination by your gp and some investigations like CBC, ESR,SGOT SGPT, X-Ray chest.

I suggest you to

Go to your GP and get your condition evaluated.

Good Luck.
