Have you considered, Costochronditis, immflamation of the chest wall? sounds a lot like what I have, usually you can tell if this is what it is by pressing on the breastbone and it will be tender.

If it's pain under the left ribs, check into making sure your spleen isn't enlarged. It often causes no symtpoms, but sometimes manifests itself as pain under the left ribs, just under where the diaphram is. Some other symptoms are back pain and abdominal fullness.

Re: Left Rib Pain and Cest pain

I have costochronditis and am considering getting a steriod injection. How do you treat it.
