    What causes rib pain while sneezing?

Hi, I am a 36 year old female who has been having really bad allergies for the last couple months. I was sneezing constantly and now have a sharp pain in the left side of my ribs when I cough, sneeze, laugh and take deep breaths. Also sometimes when I move a certain way. I m assuming its a rib, but I m not sure if I should go to the doctor. I ve had the pain for almost 2 weeks.
