I had the flu, I have since recovered but towards the end of the illness i started to develop pain on the upper left side of my back. Now the pain only hurts at night, but I have difficulty breathing--I get a pain on my left side in my chest. Is this something I should be concerned about? I want to start running and working out but cant since I cant breathe.
