Hello,

How frequently are you having the symptoms?

When have you consulted doctor last?

Do you take any medicine?

Did you have any test now?

Thank you.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

take effexor, lamictal diovan been taking several years. nothing new

 

havent been to dr yet, no tests pending

 

pain is constant, sharp pain with deep breath, burp, trying to sneeze laying on left side.

 

when laying on left side it kinda feels like it is hanging or pulling. when laying on right side it seems to hold it together more for a little easier breathing

Expert:  Dr .Saha replied 3 years ago.

Thank you for the information,

The pain in the right side under ribs which worsens with breathing, sneezing can be due to a few factors.

Musculoskeletal cause like muscle strain, costochondritis can cause it.

It can be due to infection of lungs, pleura, clot etc.

Liver or gall bladder disease like gall stone, leaking hemangioma can also be factors.

Liver or gall bladder pain can be felt in right shoulders.

I would advise to have an examination by doctor.

Doctor can then decide about tests after the clinical examination.

You can need chest X ray, ultrasound/ scan or blood tests to narrow down.

I hope this information helps.

I will be happy to assist, if you need any clarification.

Please feel free for any follow up query.

Best wishes.

Expert:  Dr .Saha replied 3 years ago.
A consultation with a gastroenterologist will be helpful.

He can take up the necessary tests.
