Problems like these can only be correctly handled by your doctor in person. He/she needs to listen to you, perform an examination and possibly run labs or other tests. That's the only way he/she can find out what's going on and what to do about it.

Dr. John H. Shim answered:

Once or twice a week I get this stabbing pain in my lower rib cage. It only lasts a moment but is extremely painful. What is this?

Costochondritis

Chest-heart
You may be developing an irritation of the cartilage that connects part of the rib cage. Is it associated with deep breathing? At age 18, I seriously doubt it is cardiac unless you have been diagnosed with a heart condition at an early age, or have significant risk factors such as diabetes, a family predisposition, or significant obesity. Have your family doc evaluate.

Pain like you describe is a concern. Many possibilities from kidney stone to appendicitis. It may be a pulled muscle or gas pain. There is no way to tell without an an exam so I recommend that you see your doctor.

I have gallstones, no obstruction and no infection. I have been having painful attacks for 18 mon, now a lump under my right rib cage in sever pain.?

See your doctor.

Cholelithiasis
You need to be seen by your doctor. You could have a stone stuck in the duct that drains your gallbladder and now your gallbladder is infected (acute cholecystitis). This can be a serious problem if not managed quickly.

Dr. Robert Rahimi answered:

Stomach pain 2 inches below right rib cage and 2 inches to the right of my belly button. I also have bloating and gas. There are two hard lumps underneath the skin which are painful.

Gallbladder or ulcer

Without knowing more, it is difficult to say what the cause is, however it can be related to your gallbladder (gallstones) or stomach (ulcer disease) especially if you are taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS like Motrin or Ibuprofen). You should contact your PCP to gather more information and possibly run some tests like an ultrasound. If you have fever/severe pain, go to ER.

Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

i have RUQ pain with nodules being palpable under the right rib cage they are painful when pressed what could this be a sign of i also feel the nodules under the ribcage under my right brrast?

UNDER the ribs?

Open-uri20120903-14800-ps032b
There is cartilage at the bottom edge of the rib cage. Inflammation there is called costochondritis. A doctor can tell if the "nodules" are just the regular shape of cartilage (which can feel lumpy), or if the "nodules" are some other disorder. That means a primary care doctor should examine the "nodules". If it is just costochondritis, then OTC Motrin or Advil may help.

Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

Pain beneath the rib cage immediately after eating? And less painful when drinking a little? What it could be?

Some possibilities..

Open-uri20120915-629-3quky3
Under the right rib cage are the liver, gall bladder, first part of the small intestine, the muscles between ribs, the diaphragm, etc... On the left side are the stomach, spleen, diaphragm (muscle for breathing), a part of the colon (large intestine), the tail end of the pancreas, etc... A doctor can evaluate to look for gallstones, acid reflux, pancreatitis, and other possible causes.
