Pulling pain under ribs. Done endoscopy and colonoscopy in the past. Cause?

Hello, I have pains at different times under both ribs at the bottom where it almost feels like they are being pulled out where it leaves me realing in pain. It goes away as fast as it come on. It happens at different times but sometimes when I turn in a way that stretches it or pulls it. I have had in the past an endoscopy as well as colonoscopy where they could not explain this?

The pain may be due to Diaphragmatic contractions.
Diaphragm is a huge dome shaped muscle which helps in breathing.
If there is any irritation to it like gastritis it will contract and cause pain.
