I have a severe sharp pain in the lower left side of my abdomen, just behind or maybe in my rib cage. Is there something I can do at home to fix this?

My friend has a chronic pain and inflammation in lower back right side of the spine right behind lowest rib he is 23?

Pinched Nerve/Muscle: Most times back pain that is sudden onset will resolve. He should use anti-inflammatory meds like ibuprofen, aleve around the clock and even tylenol (acetaminophen) to help. If this does not resolve he should see his doctor for a muscle relaxant as well. If it still does not resolve, I would recommend him to see a spine specialist for a full evaluation and testing. He may need to get an MRI to see inside. ...Read more
