Doctor can evaluate: With symptoms of "terrible pain", a doctor should evaluate. It may be nerve pain from nerves coming out of the spine. It may be bone pain from the ribs or the spine. There could be a problem inside the lung or the pleura, which is the lining of the lung. If unable to reach one's regular doctor, one can go to the E.R.

I have really bad pain, moves sides from left to right and its always around my breasts and under armpit Already gave me steriods but those didnt work?

Work patiently: You might need to be very patient and find a Dr to work with you. I expect they did some exam and tests before steroids - if not, do! Then, perhaps knowing your body in general (BMI, labs, etc) a PT eval might help for muscle/nerve work. Again - be patient and ready to exercise. ...Read more
