Likely muscle: During and after a bad cough you can pull a muscle between your ribs or aggravate an abdominal muscle. If no shortness of breath and no history of blood clots, likely not a blood clot in your lungs. Other causes are pleurisy which is inflamed lining of the lung due to infection and possible swollen spleen from virus. Pleurisy and muscle inflammation improve with Motrin. Rash? Think shingles.

Many things radiant.: ..2 the upper back & 2 shoulder region. Sub diaphragm: spleen, stomach, splenic flexure of the colon, or air in the peritoneal cavity. Above the diaphragm: pulmonary, PE, pneumonia of any type. If rib imaging was normal U need a chest x-ray, & a CT of the chest/abdomen/pelvis. Good luck!

Chest?: It is difficult to tell what is exactly the problem without knowing what other symptoms you are having. Is there shortness of breath, nausea, vomiting, sweating? If so then you need to go to the ed in order to rule out any cardiac issues. Other possibilities are abdominal problems which cover a number of issues. Also muscular and rib inflammation which carries no danger to life. Get checked asap.

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.

I am having pain in my left back side right at the rib cage. This has been going on for months on and off but the last week and is consistent?

Check kidney: It is possible to injure the tissues surrounding the ribs, but you would likely remember the incident. The area you describe overlies the left kidney, as well as other organs. Kidney infections are not rare and can cause damage if untreated. This type of pain deserves evaluation by your doctor.
