I'm having a weird dull spasming on my left side udder my rib cage its really uncomfortable and seems to help a little by standing up. And Gas?

Muscle spasm?: Could be gas, but I have also seen many complaints like this over the years that were due to muscle spasm. Commonly described as pain and a lump that goes down with self massage. Sounds like a hernia, but there are no hernias in this location not associated with a prior operation. Try anti-gas over the counter meds first and see if they help. See your doc if no help. Hope this helps! ...Read more

However, gallbladder disease and other intestinal problems which often feel like spasms. However, that location can also reflect cardiac pain.

My low ribs and left side under ribs hurts had gallbladder out three weeks ago?

My low ribs and left side under ribs hurts had gallbladder out three weeks ago?

Very normal: When surgeons remove the gallbladder through little incisions (laparoscopy), the muscles of the abdomen are greatly stretched from gas inside the belly that lets us see and manipulate the gallbladder and other organs. These muscles are directly attached to the rib cage, especially the lower ribs. This can lead to soreness, especially as you become more active. It will go away. Good luck! ...Read more
