Exam Time: Your symptoms are diffuse and could reflect several different processes. You should see a medical practitioner to sort them out. You might have a lung issue, like a partially collapsed lung, a kidney problem, other abdominal problems like ulcer, appendicitis or colon irritation, and/or muscle strains. This is a good time to see a health professional.
