Are you still there?

I was waiting for your reply to my info request.

I would advise to go to ER for an examination.

Shallow breathing, pain can be due to inflammation & infection of pleura.

Pain under right breast & shoulder can be due a gall bladder pain too.

Gall bladder pain can be referred to right shoulder.

But with shallow breathing you need an urgent examination by doctor & tests.

X ray, ultrasound examination, blood are likely to be necessary.

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.

I had my gall bladder removed in 1985. But I agree the pain is similar to a gb attack. Would I feel this pain on the right side if it were appendicitis?
Expert:  Dr .Saha replied 5 years ago.
In appendicitis the pain typically starts around the umbilicus, then it shifts to the right lower quadrant.

It does not sound like appendicitis.
