Pain on left side just under rib cage!! HELP

I'm 22 years old and have had a mild pain on the left side just under my rib cage, it hurts alot when i take a deep breath or when i cough, its not that bad that im in agony it is just very uncomfortable i have had it for most of the day.

if i lie down it isnt that bad but it is uncomfortable when i move about. i thought it might be because i havent eaten today, but i have had a sandwich and my dinner...

please could someone help and give me some advise, i really dont know what more to say about the pain >.<

As this is only occurring today for you my guess would be gas. The major organ to the left is the spleen and when it is swollen most people don't have symptoms.

If it continues for more than a couple of days, then you may want to talk to your doctor (could be IBS)

Good Luck

it has been like this for around 24 hours, i dont feel like i eed to burp or let wind out. it is just feeling uncomfortable, the mild pain stops if i put a little pressure on it with my hand or if im not moving, but as soon as i start moving it gives me a sharp little pain :-/

Do you drink milk? I used to drink a lot of milk when I was younger and always got a pain on my left side under my rib. It hurt when I took deep breaths but it eventually went away. As I got older they come less and less. I do not drink whole milk anymore I drink skim. I rarely get the pain anymore. My guess it is gas...
