Pain under right rib

Hi Everyone,
So here's my question. All day yesterday and starting again this afternoon, I have been having sharp pains every few minutes in the right rib section of my abdomen. I want to say it's just a gas cramp or something, but I am a bit nervous since it came back today. On a scale of 1-10, the pain is about a 4. I am currently on Lexapro, Ritalin, and Yasmin (birth control).

When should I see a doctor? I don't want to get all nervous if it's nothing... but I also don't want to avoid something serious.

Re: Pain under right rib

I notice that i can feel the pain much more sharply if I squeeze my stomach in ( like im trying to fit into small pants).
