pain in side under left breast

i have had a very bad pain in my side under my left breast for about 2 weeks. it makes it very uncomfortable to wear a bra, cough, sneeze, hicup, and to get up when i have been laying down. the pain seems to feel like it is right under my breast and it is going around to the center of my back. it also sometimes hurts when lift my left arm over my shoulder. i don't know if i should put a cold or hot compress on it and taking pain reliever pills don't seem to work. i feel like i did something to my ribs because i'm a smoker and i do cough alot. but the pain is only on the left side and i'm not sure if this is something that will go away in time since i cut down on my smoking or if i should see a doctor. in any case it dosen't look like it is getting any better. please give me some advice.
