See PCP or Dr. soon: If your dry could and painful ribs aren't resolved with cough syrup, it's time to see your pcp to find out what is going on. Your sore ribs are probably from coughing so much, but you need to see whether it's an upper respiratory infection, or something more severe needing a chest xray. Your pcp can examine you more closely to determine the cause, and help with the pain.

Pain under left side ribs. Hurts more when taking deeper breaths and while moving. What could be causing this and what is a good home remedy to cure?

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without taking additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. What you described suggests musculo-skeletal pain. You may take an over the counter pain medication as needed. If it does not disappear in 3-4 weeks, it would be prudent to see a doctor. 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. 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. Get HPV vaccine.

Pain down left side, ribs and back. Burping a lot . Some burning feeling in middle of chest . Tiny black specks in stools is it excessive gas?

Pain down left side, ribs and back. Burping a lot .   Some burning feeling in  middle of chest .  Tiny black specks in stools is it excessive gas?

Melenic specks?: Dark-colored stools may result from iron supplements, foods you eat (like a lot of spinach), substances (like peptobismol), but most significantly suggests bleeding. When blood is denatured by acid in your stomach, as from ulcers, stools will turn tarry ("melena"). Blood may also be ingested from nose bleeds, bleeding gums. Persistent melena with your dyspeptic symptoms however warrants md visit.

Sick like i need to throw up but i don't, lump in my throat and pain under left side ribs? I'm 27, help!

Pain under left ribs: Your pain seems to be upper abdominal. Since it is associated with nausea and lump in throat, this suggests gastritis and gastro-esophageal reflux. Treatment would be with antacids, or Prilosec or zantac (ranitidine). See your doctor if it persists, and avoid spicy foods.

Pain in left side near ribs and hurts to move?

Muscle Pain: If this pain is reproducable with movement, then it is most likely muscle-related. The left flank is a strange place for a muscle strain, though. If you've been chopping wood or moving furniture, then i could understand some under-used muscles now being painful. Try some local heat and advil (ibuprofen) to see if those help.

Second opinion. : On the one hand, sometimes it is worth going back to the original medical team to let them know you still don't have an answer. On the other, assemble all your tests and get a fresh second opinion. Let the office know you have records to review and want a second opinion. Ask them to schedule you an appointment when the md might be able to allocate more time.
