Pain under boob by rib cage

I have a pretty intense pain under my left boob that seems to be by the rib cage. It hurts a little more when I take a deep breath. I have had this pain for almost more than 24 hours. It pretty much hurts all the time and even when i sleep and im either laying on that side or the other or even when i lay on my back. What could this be?

I had the same thing several yrs. ago. But, mine was on the right side under my breast. It was pleurisy and most painful. Pleurisy is inflammation of the lung lining. Anti-inflammatories clears up pleurisy. I though would go to your doctor, explain how you are feeling etc. Hope this helps and hope you feel better very soon.
