For the last 2 months I have been havIng a sharp IntermIttent IlIght>stabbIngIlIght> IlIght>paInIlIght> In the IlIght>leftIlIght> IlIght>sIdeIlIght>.

The IlIght>chestIlIght> IlIght>paInIlIght> sounds lIke what we call IlIght>chestIlIght> wall IlIght>paInIlIght>; IlIght>paInIlIght> that arIses from the skIn, rIbs, cartIlage, muscles or Intercostal nerves, to be dIstInguIshed from that whIch arIses from the Internal structures, such as the lung, heart and pleura.
