As the infection cleared, I developed pain and slight swelling in my ribs on my right side, just below my breast. NP sent me for a chest x
-ray, which came up clear. Went back to the NP who diagnosed it as pleurisy as it hurts when I breathe, cough, sneeze, stretch - anything that causes those ribs to move. The pain also slightly radiates to my back on the same side. The swelling was gone by then, and he put me on some kind of steroids in hopes of clearing up pleurisy.
