Hi madam, thanks for approaching us at HCM. Does the pain come on taking a deep breath at all? If so this is a 'Pleuritic lower chest pain' and you may be having a chest infection. If not, it might well be coming from the kidneys. Either ways you need to see your local physicain who can examine you and initiate tests (mainly CXR, Urine routine and culture if necessary) and do the necessary. Don't waste time. Hope this helps. Regards
