Hello... I understand your concern.

I need some more information please.

1. Since how long are you having this aching sensation?

2. Did this start after a fever of short duration?

3. Are movements aggravating it or is it felt only on pressing?

4. Is it paining when you cough or laugh?

5. Are you having any redness over the rib in that area?

6. Are you a diabetic?

7. Was there any injury which might have been inadvertent and which you might have ignored or forgotten please?

Please get back to me with the above information so that I can guide you better.

Kind regards ***** ***** Sumanth Amperayani

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.
