I have abdominal cramping, rib and back pain

hi, i have been having frequent general abdominal cramping recently for about a month. It stopped a few weeks ago ago so I just forgot about it. Today I had an aching pain in my lower left rib cage.It is tender when pushed on and it feels like I have a little bone sticking out of the bottom of my rib cage. I also have lower back pain . I am a healthy 20 year old female.

Welcome to HealthcareMagic forum.
The pain you are having in your rib cage might just be a result of excessive exertion or weight lifting or an injury. For pain below ribcage, just do a hot fomentation and apply a muscle relaxant ointment thrice daily for 3-5 days. You might also take a muscle relaxant tablet orally for severe pain.
