Brief Answer: Kindly provide more of your medical data... Detailed Answer: Your pain below the rib cage on your left might be related to: - constipation - IBS - uro-genital problems (infection, prostate concerns) - arthritis I strongly suggest to: - do an abdominal ultrasound - run urine analysis and complete blood profile - PSA - arthritis blood tests Depending on the lab results, specific treatment will be prescribed. Furthermore, I'd gently like to have more of your medical data: - do you have changes in bowel movements - problems during urination - if the pain you are having is alleviated after passing the motion Thank you!
