For the last week or so I've been having an occasional stabbing pain near the bottom of my left rib and other times right under my left breast. It was stabbing pain randomly, but now it's just a dull pain whenever I bend over or lean over. It's gotten so bad that I practically have to be laying down to keep it from hurting. It almost feels like there's a bubble underneath my ribs.

I got swine flu and coughed a lot and then it started to feel like charlie horses in my left ribs under my breast. It went away and now it is back for no reason. I had chest xrays done and they could not find anything wrong with me. I also had a neurologist look at my xrays and no one knows what is wrong. When I cough or sneeze I can feel my ribs move and almost rub together or something. Terrible charlie horse sensations when I try to lay down.

One hour after I eat, I get sharp stabbing upper left stomach pains starting just under my xiphoid and to the left rib cage. It burns and throbs and then progresses along my left rib, and drops down about one inch. The severe pain lasts for about 5 hours, never less than 4.5 hours. Somedays when this happens, I can not get out of bed, I can not move, and I have had to go to the emergency room twice.

From that day on, I've had strange stomach aches/pains. Not to a point where it's so painful that I don't want to move or do anything, just strange pains right around the naval, spreading short to the the left or right (more so left) and below; tonight it feels as if someone is poking me really hard right where the breast bone splits (about 4" above naval). During the first week and a half I sometimes felt bloated, my stool stayed loose (fiberous) and a pail-yellowish color.

Irritation of the left diaphragm due to acidity causing stomach distension can also cause pain under left rib cage. If you feel pain on pressing the breast then it can also be fibroadenosis or breast abscess (less likely). Since I cannot examine you and know other related conditions you may be having, nor is a detailed history possible on net, I have listed the various possibilities that should be looked into. Please consult your PCP for primary examination. Take care!

I have a sharp cramping pain under the bottom of my left rib when I turn certain ways--when I bend over to tie shoe laces, or bend over in bath tub to wash feet, etc. It is when I bend over to the left.

Could this be a twisted bowel, or a growth in there that is crowding the intestines?
I've been experiencing pains under my left breast, where the rib cage ends for a few days and it's starting to worry me. It's like a crampy sort of pain that occurs usually after eating, and it goes slightly to the side. It's nowhere near my heart so I'm sure it's not that. I've also been eating less. I feel full quickly, even after a small meal, I burp a lot after eating, sometimes I feel sick after meals as well but don't vomit and I don't feel hungry for longer than I should after meals.
I had a burning sensation that ran from my left underarm to my left nipple. It felt like the area just under my skin was in flames. My nipple showed no sign of discharge or dimpling or discoloration or inversion, it was sensitive to the touch though. I felt and still feel what seems to be a slight thickening of the muscle surrounding the nipple, but no lumps or anything out of the ordinary. At times the pain or an indescribable feeling would run down my left arm, at times to my hand or fingers.

I have smoked since the age of 11 or 12 (I'm now 32) I quit on the 7th of May 2004, but have been having chest pains like everyone here describes for a few weeks now on my left side under my rib/left breast/armpit radiating sometimes as you mention to the shoulder. I didnt cough much when I smoked (I smoked light early on but grew to nearly 40 a day in the last few years) but I'm still not coughing now and I expected to be clearing my lungs out.
