Question: pain under right rib

 grifter - Fri Mar 11, 2005 9:39 pm

About two days ago, I woke up with pain under my right rib cage. It hurts when I breath in, and the deeper the breath the more harsh the pain. When I awake in the morning it is the worst. Even lying down in certain position aggravate it.

I am in a foreign country and would reserve going to the doctor only in true need.

Thank you
