Back Pain Under Ribcage On Right Side
I am experiencing back pain when sitting in a relaxing position for a while, it is on my left side halfway up my ribcage. What should I do?
It sounds like a muscular issue, and does not require intervention. If the pain is severe, you may take an over the counter pain medication like acetaminophen. If the pain persists, see a doctor for evaluation.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.
