    Unhappy Swelling on left side of rib cage and stomach area

    Hi everyone im a 20 year old female and was just wondering if any one else has or had this problem I'am having right now. About a week ago I got this sharp intense pain near my lower rib cage and underneath my breast on the left side. It came and went then it got really intense while I was trying to go to sleep, and it was like this throbbing, clutching pain. I felt like I couldnt breathe and it hurt everytime i took a deep breath. Then the next day the pain was still there even more painful and i felt it on my whole side of my rib cage and underneath my rib cage, thats when i noticed the swelling. The swelling was under my left breasts down to a lil pass my rib cage, after a few days the pain still was consistant and the swelling doubled in size and area..right now my whole left is still the same i cant sleep or touch my side cause it hurts and just feels "weird" for lack of better terms. Even when I'm sittin my left side kills me..I dunno I was just wondering if any1 else had this problem thanks a bunch.

    I have no idea what it could be however, with the pain and most concerning the "swelling", warrants a trip to your doctor ASAP.

    I agree, see your doctor immediately. It may be a simple problem or it may be a serious problem. You do need medical attention.
