It COULD: soreness under ribs is not uncommon with gas collections in the intestine, but in underarm is rather high. If your stomach is bloated, there could be a kind of blockage and drinking coffee would cause the intestine to be active and make the pain worse. Avoid beans, cabbage, beer, chewing gum. You should see a physician if this continues.
