sharp pain on left side under rib cage

I've been having a sharp shooting pain on my left side under my rib cage...it comes and goes..its hard sometimes to posture myself straight because the sharp pain comes but like I said it just comes and goes( but the posturing myself straight with pain only happens when the pain is already there) and right now I'm laying on my bed I feel a cooling sensation in that area after minutes of that sharp pain... I just want to figure out what it could possibly be before I might go to the doctor..especially when I need to take medications on a benign cyst I have before surgery.. so if anyone may know what it could be please let me know! Thanks!

It could be a gallbladder problem.

It could also be trapped gas causing the pain.

Re: sharp pain on left side under rib cage

Does it hurt when you move and breathe? if so it could be pleurisy.Check it out on NHS. Does it feel like someone stabbed you in the chest?
