That means not waiting at home to see if it turns into a bad heart attack. As the saying goes, "better safe than sorry." Winter snow is a pretty sight, but can be frightfully unkind to those with a heart condition. ...Read more

Pleurisy: You have classic pleurisy symptoms. This is an infection which can be due to virus, bacteria or mycoplasma. If you've been coughing a lot, you could have a muscular component as well now.

Intercostal muscle.: Sounds like either intercostal muscle strain (strain of muscles b/w the ribs) or costochondritis (CC), inflammation of the cartilage where the ribs connect with the sternum.

Alternately, CC is rare but gives tenderness to touch. ...Read more
