Short stabs of pain under bottom of left rib cage that come and go. Is this my Gerd acting up? Had a few huge burps that seemed to help
Should I be worried I've had a pain in my left side of the back of my rib cage at the bottom. I've had this pain for4 days.
Pain for 4 days: It depends if the pain is getting better or not. If it is getting better, then you should not be worried. If it is not getting better, then it becomes a concern. See if it is better or gone in the next couple of days. If it is not better or worsens, then I would recommend that you get it evaluated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
