Hello,

The ache under the ribcage can be due to low levels of calcium or vitamin D3 or related to costochondritis. Only the test results can tell the abnormality that you have.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Praveen Tayal, Orthopaedic Surgeon

I have multiple lipomas along my rib cage. Recently the one under my ribcage is very painful, to the point where it is disrupting my sleep. When I get them examined, the doctor usually just goes ah ha,...just a lipoma, don t worry about it, they don t hurt. This one does and the other ones at various times will ache.

hi...I am a healthy female, 54 yrs old...i woke up two mornings ago with a severe, sharp pain in the left, back, rib area of my back. The pain is so sharp and intense that I can t breath or talk. It feels like a cramp. This happens when I move my body a certain way. It is not constant. When it isn t sharp, intense pain it is just a dull ache in the same area. I have been under a tremendous amount of stress and am hoping its not related to that in some way....thank you for your time....Pamela
