Kinda dull pain on left side under rib

This has to happen on a Friday. I noticed it at work this morning and it seems to hurt on and off. Nothing else seems out of order just having this annoying pain.
Have no idea what is there on that side that would hurt. Can anyone help, I don't have insurance but if I need to go to the er I will.
Thanks
Sunshine

Re: Kinda dull pain on left side under rib

Just found your posting.

I have had that for years now. Mine goes up onto the lower rib. Sometimes better, sometimes worse. If I press there, it hurts like the devil. The doctor says it has to be a muscle as there isn't anything else there. Says it is a muscle that I have strained. I do the same thing all the time so don't know what could have strained it. Have had bone scan, x-ray and MRI. Nothing.

Re: Kinda dull pain on left side under rib

how is it now?
It depends on where the pain is originating from. left side by how much? It can be from the heart. Depends on your age, lifestyle, events that lead up to developing the symptoms, and past poblems with the thoracic region

There are 5 possibilities.
1. Muscle pain
2. Respiratory tract/ system infection
3. Heart disease
4. Angina
5. pericarditis - inflamation of the pericardium
