I have a minor pain on both of my sides between my rib cage and abdomen its a very minor pain more like a pulsating tingle mainly is just discomforting and annoying any ideas?
Mild muscle spasm?: Minor muscle spasm/twitching can cause that "pulsating tingle" you described. The muscles attaching to the edges of your ribcage can get irritated/strained from rapid trunk-twisting movements as during swinging a baseball bat or a tennis racquet etc. If massing the area relieves your symptoms, it is likely to be so.
