Sharp pains in left ribs front/back, tender where dress boning pushed against rib last week, small swelling under skin, gassy and acid reflux?

Sharp pains in left ribs front/back, tender where dress boning pushed against rib last week, small swelling under skin, gassy and acid reflux?

See your doctor if you are not healing in a timely fashion. ...Read more
