I'm a smoker and I can't visit a doctor this month. In late December I started to get a pain in left side of my chest below my rib cage. The pain get more severe at the top and bottom of each breath. On a scale of 1-5 the pain being a constant 2-3 with a 4 at the top of each breath. I was short of breath and could only sleep on right side of my body. Any attempt to try to take a full breath the pain would literally stop me from completing the breath and I would feel a sharp pain.
