This is not the only possible cause but is the most likely. This is a treatable problem. Let your doc know your new symptom and ask for help. ...Read more

See below: You describe pleurisy or pericarditis. If your pain is relieved sitting forward, worse lying on your back, you likely have pericarditis. If not, it's more likely pleurisy. These potentially can be serious symptoms and should be investigated. Do you use birth control pills ?(cause blood clots); do you have fever? (may have pneumonia). There are other serious rare causes as well. ...Read more

I've had fatigue & dark circles under my eyes for about a year now. More recently, I've noticed occasional acute pain under my left ribcage. Thoughts?

Fatigue: The dark eye color is from fatigue, swelling of capillary beds and pooling of blood in the vasculature. Get more sleep! Try a caffeine based eye cream that will cause vasoconstriction and reduced the dark circle appearance. The rib pain I feel is not related to the primary concern. ...Read more

I have severe burning pain under my left ribcage feels like somethings stuck at times also is hot to the touch my feet lips and face burn 2nd x in 2yr?

Hard to say: Since this is the 2nd time in 2 years you're having symptoms i would ask your primary care doctor to either work the picture up by ruling out simple things such as an infectious process (if in fact under the ribs it is hot to the touch) and going from there or to send you for a neurological evaluation. No specific disease to call based on what you've written but a work up, i believe, is warranted. ...Read more
