Yesterday I was diagnosed with a sinus infection. For the past week I have been coughing terribly and though it was due to allergies and the change of seasons. Last night I started getting accute pain under my lower left rib cage whenever I cough, stretch or bend over. The pain is sharp like a knife. Unbearable. I started taking anti inflamatory but no relief. Any suggestions?
