Consider Colon Spasm: 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. ...Read more

Should I be worried I've had a pain in my left side of the back of my rib cage at the bottom. I've had this pain for4 days.

Pain for 4 days: It depends if the pain is getting better or not. If it is getting better, then you should not be worried. If it is not getting better, then it becomes a concern. See if it is better or gone in the next couple of days. If it is not better or worsens, then I would recommend that you get it evaluated. ...Read more

I been having pain on my left side of my rib cage, should I worry since i had it all day yesterday, and also right on the bottom of my spine it aches?

Be ready: If you have fever, shortness of breath or weak and lightheaded, you should be evaluated today. If you feel ok other than the pain, and symptoms are not worsening, you could wait and see if it persists for a couple of days, especially if you can identify a well-defined area of tenderness in the chest wall. That would tell you it's probably a musculoskeletal problem. Low back pain may be unrelated. ...Read more
