Because this pain is: SO positional, I have to suspect a musculoskeletal cause such as rib contusion or fracture, intercostal muscle strain, etc. Pleurisy, inflammation of lung lining, or pericarditis would likely hurt with other positions and activity (deep breathing, coughing).Perhaps you can recall some chest trauma? I think you can watch it; it should gradually improve. See Doc if it doesn't or more symptoms appear ...Read more

Breathing hurts in rib on left side what's wrong ?

Try taking your Ibuprofen or naprosyn, (naproxen) but relaxation techniques may be of even more benefit. Check out: http://dawnbuse.Com/relaxation.Htm. ...Read more
