Ribcage & Back Pain

I have had pain in my upper left ribcage & back for almost 3 weeks now. Could this be a complication from the "Acute Brohchitis" I had almost 2 months ago?

This would be a most unusual residual of acute bronchitis, but related or not, this is a serious symptom that warrants further investigation.  You should definitely consult with your doctor and have a chest x-ray to rule out unanticipated disease.  He/she may be able to judge the most likely cause of your pain, based on physical findings, the characteristics of the pain, and the presence or absence of tenderness to touch.

It would be wise to arrange for this evaluation to be done soon, today or tomorrow.

Good luck.
