What causes pain in rib with gas in abdomen?

I have been having some pain under my ribs left side, like an aching and burning in the back. I have been getting very gassy when I eat. It s kind of a dull pain but today i pressed down under my rib cage in the center upper abs and it felt sore and started hurting to my back.

HI.
Thanks for your query.
With the nice history you have provided , I would think of the following:
The gastric ulcer on its posterior wall.
Or - pancreatitis.
Both have similar symptoms.
To confirm the diagnosis , I would recommend you to ::
Undergo upper GI endoscopy and ultrasonography.
In the meantime get a Ranitidine / PPI; antacid gel. Soft bland diet.
I find this answer helpful
