About 3 weeks ago I felt a discomfort in my rib area on the left side. Over the weeks this has progressively gotten worse - not painful, not harder to move and not affected particularly by my breathing. It is a sensation of something under my rib that shouldn’t be.
I have had no other infection as far as I’m aware in terms of a cold or flu that could have caused this. I have had chest X-ray, bloods and ultrasounds all of which have come back normal.
The only thing that my mind keeps linking to is a severe infection on my upper left gum where I then had the tooth removed about a week ago. But no medical professional seems to think the two are linked.
At this current time no one can see what could be wrong however I have moments of feeling slightly lightheaded and this discomfort in my rib side is always there. I developed severe anxiety as a result but this seems to be subsiding the more I am told it is nothing sinister.
However the not knowing is now beginning to take its toll as I do not know if I am recovering from something or developing something - that in itself is terrifying! Sorry for the long post but because I can function but only at about 60% of my normal self I don’t think anyone is interested in hearing about it anymoren
