IgG 1710 ESR 29 ANA 1:160, Low vit. D, rib pain in lower ribs, dr said pneumonia antibody low. urine protein 24 hour was 65 blood prtein 7.8 Calcium9.8 WBC 7.06, Platlets 284 scared! only 26 yrs old?

See a rheumatologist

Vitamin_d
A single elevated ESR is not concerning but if it remains elevated for several months,there may be some underlying systemic inflammation that could indicate an early rheumatologic disease such as Sjögren's syndrome. High IgG and total protein can definitely be part of Sjögren's syndrome. ANA titer of 1:160 not concerning unless ANA panel antibodies are also positive like SSA and/or SSB antibody

I am having very painful rib pain when I inhale, is that to be expected with pulmonary hypertension?

No

Pulmonary_hypertension
rib pain on inhalation is likely musculoskeletal or pleural. the main symptom of pulmonary hypertension is shortness of breath. currently you are not on any pulm hypertension therapy. a right heart cat and other studies are neeed to determine your cause of pulm hypertension and subsequent treatment

I just had pneumonia. I was cleared 2 weeks ago, but 3days later I got a sharp pain on my right "side" below the rib. Movement, cough, & touch = pain?

Pleurisy

Cough
It sounds like pleurisy. If it has come up suddenly after you were better, you should be seen.

Could i have fractured a rib from coughing while i have pneumonia?

Yes

It is possible but not common. I'd consider muscle injury as a more likely culprit. The pain from that can continue for a month or more.

Likely not cardiac

Neck-throat
Probable pneumonia versus strep throat. Might want to get it check, less likely cardiac.

99.2temp cough chest congestion not always productive,feel like needs to.chest/back/rib px&soa 3rdABX,inhaler,steroids-CXR O2 ok feel worse pneumonia?

Maybe, maybe not

Congestion
Some of these symptoms are seen with pneumonia, such as cough, chest congestion, etc, but they may be seen with other problems such as bronchitis or asthma exacerbation. A normal chest xray is a factor against pneumonia but is not always 100% accurate. The best approach would be to discuss the situation with ones doctor and determine if there is an infection or non infectious lung issue.
