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

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. Exception might be a pinched nerve in the spine. ...Read more

I have a numbness/ tingling sensation under my low left ribs toward the middle of my body when I lay down on my side. No pain. 3-4 months.

Nerve: This could be a pinched nerve that is aggravated in certain positions. If you are not extremely bothered by it, there is no need to seek urgent care. If you see rash in the area, then I would see an M.D. as it could be shingles. The tingling with shingles though, is not usually intermittent or position dependent. ...Read more

I have a fist size area of skin where shlder blade n ribs meet that is extrmly sensitive. Its a mix of tingling, burning hypersensitive feel Painful y?

Radiculopathy : This could be because of a spinal nerve root being irritated in the thoracic spine. If this persists and gets more intense, an MRI of the spine can demonstrate the issue. Sometimes, symptoms like this occur before Zoster occurs- that is a rash with tear drop like small blisters on the skin. This is due to the chicken pox virus and occurs due to reawakening of the virus in adulthood. ...Read more
