What organ is under the bottom edge of the rib cage on the left side of the body? Pain from a knot under the bottom edge of the rib cage on the left side of my body. Once the knot goes away so does the pain. Getting worse. I am also a chronic pain patient

In this case, use high dose of good quality acidophilus, along with bulk laxative (psyllim). Take separately. ...Read more

Does the shooting pain from a heart issue/attack come from behind the left ear and down the neck into the left arm? I'm experiencing that.21and active

Not really but: The most common path for cardiac pain such as from a heart attack is either straight chest heaviness or pressure in the sternal region or a radiating pain from the chest to the left shoulder and down the arm. I've not heard the detour to the ear & neck although anything is possible. I'm concerned you have asthma as well so if this picture is new to you you should be seen for further workup. ...Read more
