does it hurt if you have a full breath of air in? You can't really diagnose things over the internet because there are too many questions answered. But if it hurts when you breath in, it could be many things, however two things are more likely: 1. rib subluxation (see your chiropractic doctor) 2. Pleuracy / Pleural Effusion / Pleuritis (see your medical doctor)

Recently I have had a sharp pain in the wrist , not in the joint but seemingly in the blood vessels or tendons right before the wrist. It then jumps from there to underneath the left breast & throbs a few counts there. I have no difficulty breathing , run/wallk often, am a healthy 50 year old woman 5 5 at about 118 lb.s. I used to lift more weights at the gym but had to let my membership go, but am called upon to move file boxes at work fairly often.

hi my name is Alison I have relapse remitting MS and I was diagnosed over 12 yrs ago. I am 41 ur old mother of 2. I was in hospital this week presenting with fade outs I was treated with IV steroids and have been discharged but they are keeping a close eye on me. They discovered a lesion on my frontal lob which is causing my MS to mimick epilepsy. I have had a full cardio going over to to rule out anything with the heart. IOver the past 24 hours I have developed a pain under my left breast that worsens if I breath deeply or try to move. I m not aware of it normally.

Hi , I ve had , what I believe to be, a viral invection the last 3/4 days . I ve had a fever , chills , body aches , loss of appetite, nausea ( I believe due to the lack of food mixed with painkillers) , head aches , but mymain concern is when I breath in deep or cough, or lie a certain way, I get a sharp pain on the left side of my torso , specifically under the left rib beneath the left breast . Occasionally it moves down further to my lower torso momentarily. I have had this this I got the viral invection but assumed it would go away but it s not.
