Full feeling beneath ribcage, light tenderness, worsens on lying on either sides, hurts at the end of exhale. Relief measure?

Hi. I feel a weird pressure, almost full feeling just beneath my ribcage right in the middle. If you push where its at, its feels a little tender. It almost feels like I have a bubble stuck in there. It gets worse when lying down on either of my sides , and also hurts the most when I m at the end of an exhale, and not as bad when I have inhaled. What can I do to make this go away? Its uncomfortable and when it hurts the most , it turns to sharp pain. It seems like it began after i ate some pizza for dinner, but that was 2 nights ago now.

Good evening. I think you have sprained a part of the muscle area there. It doesnt look like related to the food. If u didnt sustain a fall you dont hve to go for an xray or anything. For now you can take some painkillers, use local anti inflammatory gels, ice packs and avoid lifting any heavy objects.if it doesnt get better do consult an orthopaedic.
