Upper back pain: The pain that you describe is typical of an inflamed rib head as it inserts into the spine. Anti-inflammatory medications, stretching and massage can help.

I have chest pain left side below my heart when breathing in and when lifting anything been there for a week now and getting more painfull. Any ideas?

I have a sharp pain on left hand side of chest when breathing. This has been happening on & off for years but it's nearly every day from 5-30 minutes.
Pain on left side of rib cage (no physical injury, but swelling), even on deep breathing. Localized on touching. Had a bike accident 2 days back.
Possible fracture.: It is possible to fracture a rib or just bruise it up pretty well. Sometimes the pain can be severe. As long as you are not having any shortness of breath (excluding that due to sharp pain with inspiration) you will heal. There is no real benefit to having rib xrays as the treatment will be the same -avoid injuring it while it heals. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
