Posted on Wed, 27 May 2015
Question: I have pain in my right side under my rib cage and around to my back. I thought it was a kidney stone but CT scan was negative. I have been to the emergency room 3 times in a week. I have blood in my urine, high liver enzymes and a partially collapsed right lung. I also have been running a low grade fever off and on. Any suggestions? Thanks for your help

i got a chest xray and a ct scan with contrast. It showed that my lung collapsed. i am still having a lot of pain under the right rib. i can breathe better since they gave me antibiotics but my breathing is still labored and sum slot of pain. i had no symptoms except the pain and then a lot of blood in my urine. then my lung collapsed and they said my liver enzymes are high. I'm confused how all this happened so suddenly and I'm still hurting

viral infections tend to happen suddenly. It is mostly air borne and at times due to touch contamination.

Here are some tips to prevent such infections in the future

1. Keep your hands clean. Make sure to wash them frequently especially before eating. Keep a hand sanitiser with you at all times
2. Cut your nails regularly
3. Be at a safe distance from anyone who is coughing or who might be infected
4. be careful in crowded places like bus and railway stations

I hope I was of help
