Yikes! This hurts! I started to hurt across my breast bone, and just a tiny bit to my left. I don't hurt when I breathe in very much, but moving or twisting my neck or back or bending over is terrible. Sitting very still for a while helps, but as soon as I try to get up, wow!

I had a sharp, stabbing pain in the right chest that woke me up.

I got sick with bronchitis. I developed a sharp pain in my right side with coughing and, sneezing about a month into my cold symptoms. I have now had this constant right-sided pain for 13 days and I went to see my doctor 10 days ago. He diagnosed me with pleurisy and I was given a steroid shot and an antibiotic. I've finished the antibiotic and my symptoms are still just as severe.
