Hi, i'm16 years old, male. On saturday morning, i woke up with a fever, headache, and sore throat with aches and pains everywhere. I'm almost positive this was the flu. On monday morning i woke up to a cold sweat, so i knew my fever broke, but i had some odd pain on my left side that wouldn't allow me to lay on that side of my body. it began to hurt to the point where i took ibuprofen which made the pain completely go away. Six hours later it came back and ibuprofen did nothing. the best way for me to describe where the pain is would be in my back and radiates up toward my left shoulder. i don't know if it could be something with my lung or my heart. any help would be greatly appreciated.
