    Hello there, yes, have had pain around ribs, sides and front, found a lot of the pain was from coughing, but also trying to take deep breaths which also can produce pain in this area. Sometimes it goes of its own accord or sometimes I had needed physio to help reduce the pain, this is my experience only, then again, I have been having one flare up after another so may not be same as yours, hope you get some relief soon, kindest thoughts

    Hi Southp and welcome.

    If you've not been coughing ......  could be that you still have a lung infection.

    If that pain continues even when your lungs are clear I would ask for an xray just say you are concerned its something else.  If you are getting repeated infections now ask for a referral back to the Consultant.

    I was bad last year after having been infection free for a number of years, but by heck it does knock you right back when the infections are ongoing.

    Take good care hope you get some action to give you some peace of mind.

    Best wishes V
