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

Lower rib pain

Chest
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.

The pain and tingling is at the btm of rib cage on right hand side about inch down and the ultrasound showed gallbladder ok but prostate enlarged?

Incidental finding

Reye_syndrome
You are undergoing an outpatient workup for the pain. This US test has revealed an incidental finding of prostate enlargement, currently without symptom. Also the US was negative for gallstones which is not the same as okay gallbladder. More testing may be recommended. Stay on a low fat diet, small frequent meals, increase hydration, while still under pain evaluation. Be well.

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

Nerve_injury
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. Exception might be a pinched nerve in the spine.

I have rib cage restriction, breathing problems, hyperventilation syndrome?, forward head posture, tingling hands, rib cage won't expand... Why? TOS?

Considerations

Breathing_exercises
You describe a likely explanation for your breathing problems associated with your medications and history, but there may be additional issues that remain to be solved, and I cannot say you do not have TOS associated with hand tingling, but again, other problems may be more likely, such as hyperventilation causing the tingling. Your doctor should readily be able to sort all of this out.

Sharp pain and a bulge had came out on outer upper left ribs with a lasting tingling. Earlier today my FP said "I might have Silent Reflux". Related?

No

Reflux
Reflux occurs when refluxate runs up the esophagus from the stomach. There should not be a visible "bulge" seen nor felt.
