Pain in left side in rib area and intensified when I bend over or tilt forward in sitting position and I cannot lay on that side. Its very tender to touch at times. My gallbladder has been removed. I have stinging, burning pain and I cannot cough, sneeze, etc without holding my left ribs which helps some. I wonder if it is my lung, tissue around lung, a muscle or another organ enlarged in abdominal area putting pressure on rib area whenever I bend, tilt forward or lay on left side? What are my possibilities. I'm unemployed, uninsured and uncertain as to how long this is going to bother me. It began over 1 month ago.
