Hello I'm Dr Chip

Where exactly is the pain located and any tenderness there?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
Left side, right below the inner part of my chest/breast
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 11 months ago

And is it tender there?

Customer reply replied 11 months ago
No
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 11 months ago

OK

Then it's not a pulled chest muscle or a broken rib from the coughing

But you may be having what's called pleuritic symptoms from either a bronchitis or actually pneumonia

At this point you need to see a doctor for an exam and a chest x-ray and you'll probably need a course of oral antibiotics

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
