Pain under lower left rib cage, on getting up. History of pleurisy. Treatment?

I have been having pain under my lower left rib cage. If I push slightly on my ribs I feel very sore. When I get up from sitting, I feel the pain and soreness. I have not injured myself in any way. It feels some like pleurisy I had a few years ago, except it does not seem to hurt more when I take a deep YYYY@YYYY

Hi, Thanks for query,
It seems that you might be having Costo-chondritis of the rib.
Apply some pain reliever cream.
Take analgesic tablet as and when required.
Ok and bye.
