Pain on left side
Doc I have had a pain on my left side parallel with my left breast for a month. Sometimes I think it is a muscle but I can't see why the pain doesnt want to go away. I feels like it is under my rib under my breast and when I breath I can also feel it. Please help I can't go for x-rays as it is costing a fortune and if I know it is nothing to worry about I can live with it untill it disappears by itself
Karools, it might be due to your spleen, colon, kidney and even your lung. The problem is that I can only guess from this side of the screen, so the best would be to see your doctor and if you can’t afford it, to see a doctor at one of the state hospitals. Good luck.
