Gall bladder?: Pain under the right ribs is usually gall bladder or liver. Does eating seem to worsen the pain at all? Certain types of foods make it worse? Any reason to suspect enlarged liver such as obesity or heavy alcohol use? I would see your doctor for a check on this ...Read more

Been  having. Slight pressure under rib cage near heart n now n then i feel pain  in right arm  like nerve pain should I be concerned?

Need exam: I would recommend that exam be done in a hospital. I wouldn't delay, especially if you smoke, have a family history of heart disease, are overweight...
