What organ is under the bottom edge of the rib cage on the left side of the body? Pain from a knot under the bottom edge of the rib cage on the left side of my body. Once the knot goes away so does the pain. Getting worse. I am also a chronic pain patient

Consider Colon Spasm

Open-uri20121230-10087-1sxbk0k
Organs associated with left side of body beneath anterior rib cage are colon and spleen. A "knot" could be somatic (muscle) dysfunction related to visceral (organ) disturbance. If persistent, get Abdominal X-Ray, US, and/or CT Scan. If intermittent, consider colon pain due to gas or spasm. In this case, use high dose of good quality acidophilus, along with bulk laxative (psyllim). Take separately.

I feel something hard under my right rib cage when I lie flat. Feels big like an organ or possibly a bone, not round like a tumor. Gallbladder? Rib?

Maybe Liver

Open-uri20130513-18435-mctoxr
Liver may be palpable in very thin normal subjects with the edge of the liver just below the costal margin. It is soft and smooth and may be slightly tender. Note that on inspiration the liver moves down in the abdomen, and this may assist you in feeling the liver edge especially when the liver is enlarged. Sometimes the lower pole of the right kidney is just felt in normal subjects.

Weird sagging sensation on the right side below the rib cage when laying flat on my back. Feels like an organ (liver, kidney) is resting against skin?

Skin
This could be a variety of things. I recommend making an appointment with your primary care to have a good physical exam and taking it from there.

Lots of stuff there

Open-uri20120910-25886-ba7t8c
On the left side are the stomach, spleen, diaphragm (muscle for breathing), ribs, a part of the colon (large intestine), the tail end of the pancreas, etc... Pain can be from the ribs and their cartilage, a swollen spleen, stomach acidity/gastritis/reflux, muscle strains in the abdominal muscles or diaphragm, excess stool or gas in the colon, pancreatitis, a cancerous tumor, etc....
