Hi Natalyab - i regularly get pains around that area and my flanks, and its always a result of coughing ..straining muscles or nipping nerves sometimes a couple of pain killers can ease the issue?....but obviously if you think it maybe something else you need to get it checked out by a professional.

Hi Natalyab

go to your G.P heart attacks can show up in peculiar ways, but on the side it could be infection, but go and see your G.P
