Thank you for posting your query.

The strange sensations below your rib cage could be due to benign fasciculations, that is, twitching of muscles in that region. These are not abnormal and there is no need to worry about them. They could be related to exhaustion of tiredness.

If similar symptoms recur or involve other parts of body, then, you would need to consult a neurologist for evaluation.

I hope it helps.

Please get back if you require any additional information.
