Have tingling sensation in lower right rib area that seems to radiat to my back.  It only happens when that area is compressed somehow.  Any idea?

Tingling around rib: Suggestion #1: don't compress that area. Most tingling sensation are caused by pressure on a nerve, and there is an individual cutaneous nerve running under each rib. So in your case something is probably putting chronic (perhaps intermittent) pressure on it. Try to figure out what that might be. Treatment is relief of the pressure.

What could be the cause of a tingling/pinching under my lower left rib (chest)?

Lower rib pain: I am not entirely sure of the cause of your rib pain. I can speculate that you may have a lower rib pain syndrome, which is characterized by pain in the lower chest or upper abdomen, a tender spot on the rib margin, and reproduction of the pain by pressing on the spot. You may also have some sort of impingement on the intercostal nerves, which run along the lower borders of the ribs. ...Read more
