Our expert says:
I suggest that you get a third opinion and that you have a chest x-ray and blood tests done. It is possible that it is caused by a strained muscle or costo-condritis. However, the doctor will also have to exclude other possibilities (kidney enlargement or sub-acute infection) for this chronic pain.
