Not sure what this is!!

Hi all, a few months ago i posted on here explaining my symptoms of what i believed to be costochondritis. The pain got worse and worse and i took myself to a&e as i was struggling to breathe. The hospital did an ECG and lung xray and everything was fine, was told to take pain killers and rest. The pain subsided for a while and only had the odd twinge. The last few months i have also been diagnosed with IBS after years of bowel problems. For the last 2 weeks i have been having an on - off discomfort in my left ribs, not exactly a pain more of a dull pulling sensation, the feeling goes around my left ribs, sometimes under the ribs and down the side of my abdomen. I dont have it all day, it just comes and goes. I wondered whether this is IBS related or costochondritis, or something worse. I have consulted Dr Google and have convinced myself its something to do with my spleen. when i press the area on my ribs i can feel a popping sensation and its tender to touch. its hard to describe it any better im sorry, but i wondered if anyone else was having similar pains.
