Doctor insights on:
Tightness In Rib Cage Area
Having mild bronchitis, breathing difficulty, pain on both sides (front and back) rib cage level. Now tightness around diaphragm area.
Breathing difficulty: You should go to the emergency department since you are having breathing problems. The tightness could be muscles because of your breathing or something else
It feels tight under my right rib cage above my hip bone, no pain when I touched it, not really a lump just hard area maybe muscle hopefully.
Hopefully: This condition will be examined, I could not begin to guess; however, it might be muscular; however, requires an examination- asap.
Tightness c/w muscle: contraction, which (if enough & sustained) can become painful. All our muscles (heart muscle more so; especially inner walls nearest chambers)? blood flow during contraction. The contraction pressure opposes &? es blood flow into muscles via arteries & capillaries while? Es flow outward into the veins. Thus sustained contractions induces ischemia & (if long enough) contractions become painful.See 1 more doctor answer

Needs further eval!!: At your age, need to know duration/ onset of symptoms, need physical exam!! Our concern is missing a tumor or malignancy!! Labs and imaging with CT or at least sonogram, symptoms could mean Gallbladder problems- gallstones? What other symptoms? Weight loss? Urine changes? Bowel changes? Food makes symptoms worse??! Best if seen by internal medicine, GI or surgeon! Good Luck

Immediate response please no history of heart problems just tight and hurting back hurting really bad some left side pain around rib cage. Home alone?
Doctor can evaluate: A person with chest pain symptoms usually has to go to her doctor (or even to the emergency room) to be checked right away for a heart problems, UNLESS there is another convincing reason for chest pain (decided upon by talking with one's doctor). That means not waiting at home to see if it turns into a more serious condition. As the saying goes, "better safe than sorry".

Get a dull ache around lower left rib cage a day after drinking and calf pain accompanied by sweats and tightness around my head. What could it be?
Hang over: Hour symptoms are similar to hangover (alcohol withdrawal) symptoms after moderate to heavy drinking. In most isolated cases the symptoms should resolve in a couple of days without intervention and a regular intake if non-dehydrating fluids and nutrition. Check with physician if such episodes become frequent with dependency when social life start getting affected. Be careful out there:)
