My right side of the rib cage feels bruised and painful! What's wrong with me?
I have this bruised feeling on my right hand side, under my breast and it feels like it's on and inside of my ribs.
I went out last Friday and drank too much with a friend, I rarely drink, so I am not sure if this was part of the cause - I had 3 or 4 red bulls and vodka...
After going home I was stretching and getting ready for bed when I had a sharp pain on my right side, it really scared me and I went straight to bed hoping to feel better in the morning.
But in the morning, I felt bruised, it hurts to breathe, and if I put pressure on it, it is really painful. Please help, I really don't know what this could be, but I am 25, and am in very good health...this is freaking me out though and though the pain has lessend a bit in 4 days, it still s scaring me. Could it be a problem in my lungs? What is wrong with me?!
There can be different reasons for rib cage pain, i have been having the same pain, my gal bladder is fine, i could be appendecitice in some cases, not always, otherwise, in general, many feel this pain and it seems like common and of no harm.
