In the absence of trauma, this could be an abdominal strain, or costochondritis. Have your physician evaluate you to be sure.

Top left rib cage and left side abdomen feels heavy and tight, painful to bend over& rolling ball sensation, can't eat, shortness of breath?

Indigestion?

Shortness_of_breath
You are young so chances of serious heart conditions are lower. This could be indigestion, gas, asthma, or a virus in the ribcage. If you are in that much pain though, you should get checked out.

Yesterday, I noticed a slight lump/bulge on my upper left abdomen below my rib cage after dinner. It is not painful. Is this anything to worry about?

Not yet.

Lipoma
I wouldn't worry too much just yet. It could be a harmless cyst or deposit of fat called a lipoma. It's something your doc should check out - not urgently, though. If it's not painful and you have no other symptoms, it could be done within 1-2 weeks.

This is a problem that requires a face-to-face meeting with your doctor. In that meeting, your doctor will listen to you, perform a throrough examination and possibly order labs or other tests. Based on this information, he/she will be able to tell you what's wrong and what to do about it.

Dr. Otto J. Placik answered:

Pain across upper abdomen, heavy burping and gas, bloating, pain shoulder blade, tender under right rib cage and had gall bladder removed year ago.

See you MD

Bladder
YOu need to get a complete history and physical, laboratory testing, diagnostic imaging as well as possible endoscopy to evaluate the source of your distress. Perhaps dietary restrictions may be at fault but other more serious causes should be excluded first such as pancreatitis, malabsorption, hepatitis, and/tumors.
