Get an ultrasound: More information is necessary to make an accurate diagnosis. Does it happen after eating or eating certain kinds of food? Does it radiate to your back? Gall stones should be ruled out with a simple ultrasound test. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Gall bladder?: Pain under the right ribs is usually gall bladder or liver. Does eating seem to worsen the pain at all? Certain types of foods make it worse? Any reason to suspect enlarged liver such as obesity or heavy alcohol use? I would see your doctor for a check on this ...Read more

Having feelings of palpitations under on my left side, right under my rib cage. No pain, but feels like a slight pressure with what feels like a fluttering sensation.

Go see your doctor: asap, or go to the ER fast if you feel like you have an elephant sitting on your chest, or with that such pressure or heaviness on the left side chest. Although you are only 26 years old heart attack or other cardiac issues can strike at any age. Additionally, panic attack can lead to similar symptoms, but that is a diagnosis to be made after more serious life-threatening diagnosis are ruled out. ...Read more

Sometimes vaginal/tubal infections ( mycoplasma/ureoplasma)/torsion/tubal pregnancy can cause severe right lower abdominal pain. Lastly consider appendicitis in RLQ pain as well as constipation and gas. See a doctor/urgent care today. ...Read more

Been  having. Slight pressure under rib cage near heart n now n then i feel pain  in right arm  like nerve pain should I be concerned?

Need exam: I would recommend that exam be done in a hospital. I wouldn't delay, especially if you smoke, have a family history of heart disease, are overweight... Consider chewing two aspirins now and go get cleared. Better safe and wrong than sorry. I don't get the overwhelming impression it is your heart. But no way to be sure. Go by ambulance best. And tell someone near you. ...Read more
