Good afternoon, I ran a race yesterday and experienced a sharp pain under left rib. It didn't go away for about 5kms. Ran this morning and That region was swollen and sore. The last month I've had more acid re-flux and the discomfort in diaphragm?
Spasm: Sharp pain under the rib cage while exercising is consistent with spasm of the diaphragm. Sometimes massaging the area relieves some of the discomfort. Swelling of the region is not usual and if there is significant residual discomfort and tenderness, I recommend that you be examined by your physician and perhaps have an X-Ray of that part of the rib cage. Get help for GERD as well. ...Read more

Ovarian cyst: Probably an ovarian cyst since the pain comes and goes. Other option would be your appendix, but this would likely cause persistently worsening pain and fever. Keep your weight down within normal range, obesity causes more cysts because the fat tissue secretes an estrogen like substance that screws up your menstration and exposes the ovaries to too much estrogen. ...Read more
