Tightness, pain under the lower part of rib cage, middle & lower part of back, right buttocks. What is the issue?

I have a stabbing pain under the lower part of my ribcage on my right side. It is somewhat intermittent and I find that a warm bath gives some relief, but it comes back after a short time. I have also been experiencing tightness and some pain in the middle and lower part of my back, sometimes extending down my right buttock. The back pain came first about 2 weeks ago. The stabbing pain began on Wednesday, 5 days ago, stopped on Friday and returned on Saturday.

Hello and Welcome to HCM,
Thanks for writing to us.
The pains that you have described are likely to be due to a muscular pain. Taking mild pain killers and muscle relaxants will bring a short term relief. Regular exercise will be helpful. Get evaluated by your docter if it become persistant. Meanwhile you can do a hot fomentation and apply a local analgesic gel on the area to relieve the spasm.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...
