Pain in front and back under rib cage.

Patient

Q: Left side front and back under rib cage pain with occasional hot flashes and chills. I get woken up at night either cold chills and shivering or sweating. With the chills I'll be under the blankets with warm clothes on as well, with uncontrollable shivering and with all the clothes and blankets I have on I still can't get warm. And then with the hot flashes. I can't get cool. I have to try and find a source of cold fast or I will start getting a bit dizzy when walking. But I try my best to fight it threw until I find a source of cold. And I was giving my self a enema because I hadn't have a good solid strong poop. In a maybe 3-4 days. And I accidentally squeezed the bad and felt the crap go back I'm a little. Will that cause a problem? Anyway crap came out in liquid form. I had a bowel movement Monday or Tuesday before work, it was one solid stool. I work at United Parcel Service. UPS. And I thought I pulled a muscle the Friday before because it hurt a bit Monday. But didn't effect my work performance until Wednesday morning when I was awoken again for the pain in my side. Until Wednesday night I was in pain most of the day. Same with Thursday  Friday and Saturday and Sunday. I when to he hospital on Friday and was told the Doc thinks its a strain muscle. And gave me prescription to help with pain and swelling, Take twice a day with food to heal better and one to take at night to sleep better. I have drescribed all te symptoms I can think of. Can you help Please? Thank You.
