Brief Answer:
You need to consult a surgeon as soon as possible.

Detailed Answer:
Hello Mrs Ruqiya,

Thank you for the query.

Your symptoms suggest some abdominal issue that needs careful examination. Pregnancy is associated with liver injury in some women, and the pain can radiate to the neck or shoulder.

Since this is associated with difficulty breathing, there is a possibility of irritation of phrenic nerve.

I urge you to consult a general surgeon and your obstetrician as well without any delay.

Please do not ignore these symptoms.

I hope you will recover soon,

Best wishes.
