when I cough I have a stabbing pain just below the ribcage on my right side, slightly toward the back. I am just getting over pnemonia and am concerned that I have a hernia.

an elastic wrap just under my ribs. This does not help.
Hello,Is there any swelling?Which does aggravate it?How is cough or fever?Any tenderness?
No swelling, the only real problem is the cough which is extremely painful. No fever, It is tender to the touch right under the ribcage.
Thank you for the information,Is there any pain in the front or it is only in the back? Can you describe the site more exactly? Is there any problem with urine?
slightly to the back of upper right side just under the rib cage. some tenderness toward the front but the shooting pains are almost directly down from my right arm. My urine has seemed slow and quite often. I just got back from Mexico 2 days ago and have been on antibiotics and a nebulizer for 10 days. The coughing is impossible to control when I use the nebulizer.
