Okay so I just got over strept throat and a few days ago I noticed my left side of my rib was hurting. It hurts to touch, breath in deep, move, and when I cough lightly. When I m laying down and I sit up with just using my back muscles it hurts as well. And my back also hurts very bad. It s tense and sore and the slightest movement hurts. I m just trying to understand what is a possibility that is wrong and why. Could you please help me?
