I have no other symptoms and have just had a physical one week ago my blood tests were fine. I have been having sore ribs on both sides lately doctor checked abdomen said it was fine.

Brief Answer: Likely to be due to a muscular pain Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for your query. The pains that you have described are likely to be due to a muscular pain most likely caused by a wrong body posture. Do not worry, you can do a hot fomentation and apply a local analgesic gel on the area to relieve the spasm. Regular stretching exercise will be helpful. I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query. Take care

So you do not feel that it is serious only concerned because at times feels as though it is close to my middle upper abdomen
