Pain left side under rib cage in child.Any ideas?

My 7 year old son is complaining of pain on his leftside, I felt his ribs to see if maybe he had a bruise, but he says it hurts under the bone . No fever or any other symptoms, it doesn t hurt when he takes a deep breath or coughs. It came on rather suddenly and started about 2 hours ago. He says is hurts pretty bad. Any ideas?

Hi,
While playing he might have got some injury or muscle catch.
Give some analgesic tablet and he will be alright.
