Nice to hear that your blood reports are normal.
As pain is present in your left lower side,under your ribs,Enlargement of spleen can produce the same symptoms.
Some times it can be due to musculo skeletal cause.
Any way,consult your doctor and get X ray Chest and Ultrasound abdomen done.
If they are normal,Nothing to worry.
All the best
