Hi, I am 37 yo female, please excuse my grammarian not sure if I should go to the Urgent Care for eval of right sided chest pain, pain that is wincing. I no longer have my gall bladder, but I have had one Dr diagnose me with Saroidosis after a long stay in the hospital last yer for pneumonia. I do not smoke, bt the pain is so ad I can not take an adequate breath in, so I'm panting. I know I know I should go, but I'm just afraid it will be a lost case. Is there pain with Saroidosis and I have been told pleurisy is very painful. Thanks in advance for your help,!

Seek professional medical attention ASAP! Better to be safe then possibly really sorry later on.

Non-cardiac chest pain
RIGHT-SIDED chest pain
Gall Bladder Pain/Attack
One may/can experience sporadic pains in the middle of the upper abdomen, or just below the ribs on the right side. This pain may/can spread (radiate or travel) to the chest (perceived as chest or thoracic pain), right shoulder or between the shoulder blades and may/can be accompanied by nausea and vomiting and sometimes excessive flatulence.
Noteworthy, it can be difficult to distinguish the pain from other conditions/diseases such gastric ulcer, back problems, cardiac problems, pneumonia and kidney stones.
Additionally, right-sided pain may/can be caused by problems such as liver inflammation, lung tumors/masses and a muscle pull or torn ligaments.
Non-cardiac chest pain
The chest contains many muscles, bones, tendons, and cartilage and strains or sprains to any of these may/can can cause chest pain. Chest pain associated with musculoskeletal injury is typically sharp and confined to a specific area of the chest.
The pain may/can be brought on by movement of the chest and/or arms into certain positions, and often is relieved by changing position.
The pain may/can be triggered off by pushing on part of the chest and often become worse when taking a deep breath. Though the pain typically last only seconds, it may/can also persist for days or longer.
If/when chest pain increases when you press your finger on the painful site, or if you can pinpoint the spot that hurts, it is most likely chest wall-related pain, which may/can be caused by strained muscles or ligaments or even by a fractured rib.
