Location of under ribcage pain

Alot of people on these boards complain about pain under ribcage on right side. Are you guys usually talking about in the middle of the sternum, like where the gallbladder is, or do they mean like mine, where it is more towards the outside. (Which I guess is more parallel to the space around my nipple and armpit, ie. where you can feel more ribs?)

I am curious to know where exactly is it that most of you get your "under ribcage pain".

Re: Location of under ribcage pain

mine is on the left side mostly but I do get it on the right side, its under the breast bone and follows around to the back sometimes

more towards the outside for me

Re: Location of under ribcage pain

Mine is directly under the lower right rib, where the gallbladder is (though I have no gallbladder). Since it's usually a burning feeling I imagine it must be acid causing it. The endoscopy saw nothing.
