Having sharp pain at the bottom of rib cage. What cure should I take?

I just recently had a very sharp pain in my left side slightly to the back but at the bottom of my left rib cage. It was very sharp and occurred twice now the area is a little sensitive. I was wondering what body part is located there that could cause this pain. I am otherwise healthy and not taking any medications . I have been under a great deal of stress in the past week.

It can be a heart issue. i would suggest you to show it to a heart specialist and get your ECG done. i would also recommend you to get your cholesterol and LDL and HDL level too. If it proves any abnormality then get treatment accordingly. If it proves every thing is normal, then you can be rest assured, as it is nothing serious then .
