Needs to be checked: We do not have information to tell you what it may be. It could be an inflsmmation in the ribs. But it could also be due to problem with your right kidney as it is located just under the ribs in the back. And there may or may not be other urologic symptoms like pain during voiding or blood in stool. Get it checked as it is recurring
