I have pain under my left rib like something is rubbing and my left rib is buldging out. below my left rib is hard and lumpy I don't know if it is my intestines or colan that is lumpy. also it hurts what is called i think the strudum, when i reach up or streach it feels like it is ripping. what could it be. the pain in my lower left rib has been going on for about 2 months now but I first noticed it about 4 months ago. and my upper belly gets hard like there is a band tighting up. my back hurts too, mostly my right lower back. sometimes it feels like my sides are rubbing like everything is dry or there is an infections and it is swishing around making my sides hurt like i ran a mile.

Hello ,

thanks for writing to us
The cause of frequent problem -this kind of pain is due to compression of nerve because of spinal disc bulge. Nerve compression lead to radiating pain, which aggravated on long time sitting in same particular position.

Another differential is pleural pain due to lung inflammation.or intestinal abcess
you may need methylcobalamine , muscle relaxant with analgesic

take rest , , hot or cold fomentation
avoid lifting weights

physiotherapy - SWD ,IFT WILL HELP
If pain is not relieved you will need MRI cervical spine.
You need clinical examination from surgeon.
