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

Possibly: If this worsens or recurs following fatty meals, it's likely GB disease, but this needs to be thoroughly evaluated by your doctor. ...Read more

Feeling of pressure/tenderness under right rib cage closer to diaphragm. Notice it more when sitting down, like something is pushing against the ribs?

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.

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

Aching pressure pain from my right flank to my pelvic. The pain goes also from under my right rib cage down to pelvic. Help?

Flank pain: Would seek medical attention today at doctor /urgent care. Could be kidney stone causing flank pain,or gallbladder stone ( under right ribs). 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?

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

I have pain in my back on the right side at the bottom of my rib cage when pushed or pressure is applied. ?

Use RockTape: Consider taping these areas - http://youtu.Be/bg1-vnibcti support prevents muscle strech and pain - orally take nucleotides which are essential to rebuild and repair tissues. These areas if tender there is inflammation either due to gall bladder or liver sludge consider doing a liver, gall bladder cleanse if no relief check with your doctor to make sure there are no gall stones, infection etc. ...Read more
