I am having this problem now. I had a bad cold, and I feel as if I am at the end of it, but it took one month. In the meantime, about a week ago I started having pain in my left side. I took Advil and it helps, but when I sleep, I cough and the pain is so bad it wakes me up. When I roll over, I also have pain. Each day I hope the pain will disappear. If it doesn't by tomorrow, I will go to a clinic.View Thread
I did make an appointment, but the earliest time I could schedule one is for this Friday. In the meantime, my side pain has subsided and I have a less of a cold. If all the pain is gone by Wednesday, I'll cancel the appointment. Thanks for your concern.
