Rib/arm pain when breathing

OK so last 2 days I've had intense pain on every breath in unless I do really shallow breaths. It starts from the bottom of my ribs (left hand side) and goes right up in to my upper arm via my shoulder. I'm not coughing a lot although I've had a general cold and am fluctuating between hot and cold with a nauseous feeling. I hate going to dr but I've never had so much pain. Ibruprofen and paracetamol are taking the edge off but I'm exhausted and still in a fair amount of pain. I have a dr appointment this evening but I'm now scaring myself with dr google and the intensity of the pain is hard. Can I take anything else to stem pain until I get to Dr's ir do anything pro active?
