Strange, persistent spasm or flutter just under rib cage. Any ideas ?

I have a strange, persistent spasm or flutter just under my rib cage above my stomach . It reminds me of how it felt when I was pregnant (in which case the sensation was much lower). But I m not pregnant! And it feels uncomfortable at times, and obviously annoying. This has been happening every day for about two weeks now. Any ideas?

Hi welcome to Health care magic forum.
As you describe you have got pain and flutter under the rib cage, since 2 weeks. It appears to be gastric irritation, may be due to diet habbits, peptic ulcer, intestinal worms etc.
I advise you to consult a gastro enterologist for diagnosis and treatment. you may have to go for gastroscopy besides other routine tests for confermation.
I advise you to follow some diet recommendations as avoid taking spices, junk foods, and oily foods, to avoid gastric irritation.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery, and thanks for calling.
Best regards.
