Pain in rib cage, goes away when lying down or sitting. Help

I’m having pain in my right side under my rib cage. It’s been there for about 3-4mos now. I’ve been to the ER and they said it’s a muscle spasm . It feels like someone is twisting and untwisting my side. It starts in the stomach (right side only) and travels around to the middle of my back. The only time it goes away is when I m lying down or sitting in a comfortable position. Please can you help me???.....So tired of this pain?

Thanks for writing to us.
Since the pain decreases on adequate rest, it is likely to be due to musculoskeletal sprain. Adequate rest and anti inflammatory medicines will help in recovery. You can use a chest belt too.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
