    Hi adele

    I was wondering whether you were getting the same symptoms as before when you had Pneumonia, if so, please see your doctor.

    It could also be Pleurisey, (I think thats how you spell it !!), if not, either way, please see your doctor or go to A&E as you should not be suffering with this.

    Please let me know how you get on.

    All the best and best XMas greetings to you.

      I did go to drs and was told possible costochodrilitis if that is spelt right, mine is more annoying and achey than pain, but was tender when dr pressed on rib, mine is located just of the center of breast to left and also along the edges of lower ribs too, also ache in upper chest area near 2 or 3rd rib aches alot more so with excertion or exercise, I get it on the right too but that tends to go quickly x sounds like you could have it, mine hurts to lay on the left side aswell, so it could be that x get back if you find out what is causing it x
