There is a possibility of a kidney contusion here but that wouldn't cause pain with your breathing

A rib contusion or fracture could to that

I suggest you see a doctor for an exam, x-rays and a urinalysis to check all this out

Please let me know if you need any more information

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.
