Extreme pain under rib cage. Pain travelling to neck, back. How to get relief?

I am having extreme pain under my rib cage on the left side. I have had air pockets here before but never like this. Its been going on for over 2 hrs and is still going.I have Stretched, loosened and undone garments of clothing, walked around, drank hot tea and nothing is helping. The pain has been traveling to my neck & back. But the pain in my neck is a more of a dull radiating pain. What should I do? Is this normal?

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum
Thanks for choosing H.C.M.F.
Your neck and back pain appears to be the cervical spondylosis, even radiating to left rib cage. May be gastric pain or pancriatic pain radiating to the neck.
I advise you to consult an orthopedic surgeon for diagnosis and treatment, you may have to take M.R.I. neck and upper abdomen besides other routine tests for confermation.
You will be fine with minimal invasive treatments, so dont worry.
Best regards.
