Suggest treatment for sharp pain in the ribs
Rib bone pain or stomach.
Thanks for writing to Health Care Magic, I am Dr Muhammd Ahmad, I have closely read your question and I understand your concerns, I will hereby guide you regarding your health related problem.
Left rib pain which aggravates on bending down is usually musculo skeletal... or in rare cases it can be stomach... heart pain doesnt usually change on bending down.
Here a very important suggestive point is tenderness..if you put pressure on the area of oa8n and the pain gets worse then its most probably your rib bone paining this is called costochondritis and it can be relieved with simple measure.
1) use tylenol 500mg for pain.
2) Give your rib case rest(dont put pressure on it dont sleep at that side)
3) Cold compresses relieve inflammation.
4) Rub burfen or diclofenac gel over the problemetic area.
5) For stomach issues you can use syrup gaviscon before every meal this will help stabilizing things.
6) Avoid smoking alcohol fizzy drinks tea coffee caffeine (what ever is relevant)
I hope this answered your question, if you have more feel free to ask,otherwise close the discussion and rate it.
