Pain n stinging at bottom of both sides of bottom ribs

Can anyone relate to this awful feeling , when ever I move or take a breath in there is a stinging sharp pains at bottom of both ribs, also quite wheezy, I’ve just been home a week from hospital after pseudomonas, took a sample in a few days ago but came back clear, any one experience this it is making my anxiety level really bad xx

Hi Carol

Sorry to hear you had a bad infection..I would phone for a home visit to check about the pain and about phoning the BLF helpline in the morning so you are reassured??

Take good care x

I agree with Fran. It's fairly likely that you've strained the muscles from coughing or breathing in an unusual way but it's best to get it checked
