Hey everyone. im new. came here as ive lurked alot. and you all seem like a knowledgable bunch :-).
So about two weeks ago I suddenly devolped apain in my top left rib. under my breast. if I lay lie on the sofa with my back against the arm rest it hurts when I breath in if I lean over to tie my shoes same again or bend forward just leaning on the kitchen counter. I can feel it. when I breath deeply it hurts alot. I cant pinpoint if its coming from the back or front as it feels like it affects both.
I got a cold last week. which is clearing up now.
I mentioned it to my doctor and she said its just inflammation.
But im not convinced. as two weeks is along time for me.
I guess im worried as I work with dogs in a confined area. breathing in alot of hairs, dirt dead, skin (dog groomer 10 years) and ive heard of a condition called white lung disease.
Sorry for the long winded post
