What you describe suggests chronic inflammation of one or more of the intercostal nerves, which are the nerves that course along the bottom edge of each rib, or chronic inflammation of the pleural surface of the lung called pleurisy. After the long period of 6 years, the latter should be evident on chest x-ray, but a CT scan of the lungs might be required to demonstrate it. Most commonly, the former, intercostal nerve irritation, usually results from something compressing or stretching of the nerve(s). You should request consultation with a pulmonologist.
When the problem resides with the intercostal nerves, injection of the nerve with a substance that will render the nerve non-functional, is an option. This type of procedure is most often performed by an anesthesiologist, who specializes in pain control.
Hi, Thank you so much for the response, well i forgot to mention any thing about myself. I am a 25 years old woman and i do suffer from sinus. I got a bit worried as the pain is only on the left side of my chest. I am getting use to the pain these days, but sometimes its unbearable.
And about being tensed, i am a bit over emotional and hyper at times, i have had panic attack once, that too caused breathing problem.
