Have celiac disease, hashimoto. Rib pain. Could this pain be recurring because i keep pressing and have possibly bruised them?

I have celiac disease , just recently diagnosed, and I also have Hashimoto s. I have pain in my RUQ only when I press on my ribs. Sometimes when I sit I have the pain. I saw my doctor and he said it was nothing to worry about, but it s weird that I when I press it, it feels like a bruise . It s been going on for almost a month. Could this pain be recurring because I keep pressing and have possibly bruised them? I am only 27.

Hi, it appears to be the gastric irritation due to the irritant foods, or an ulcer. Nover press the spot continuously, to prevent the friction effect of the spot.
Though not recommended, avoid taking milk, and milk products, and gluten containing foods like wheet and barley. Avoid taking spices, junk foods, and oily foods. Thank you.
