Hello. : Hello. I can't diagnose your condition. However you describe severe pain in the left upper quadrant of your abdomen with swelling and tenderness to palpation. You also have nausea as well as shortness of breath with pain extending into the chest and back. I think that this constellation of symptoms would warrant an evaluation at an emergency room. Take care. I hope you are feeling better soon.
