Right under my left rib, i have a deep gnawing pain. I also have the same kind of pain around the side and to the kidneys, and a small area behind my arm (my upper back). I have been feeling breathless too, though i don't know whether this is related or not. Does anyone have any idea what this could be? I am starting to fear it is something serious.

  • i've had this too. i love on long island new york and when i went upstate for my college orientation i got this on the car ride up there. i had it on my left side but the pain was located along the side of my ribs just under, and on the side of my left breast. the pain also occurred in the crease of my left shoulder blade. i took some advil but it didnt really help. i couldn't sleep very well as i had to continue to take deep breaths and my back would hurt. sometimes the pain would dfull but then come back very strongly. VERY PAINFUL!!! when i got back home to the island it went away. i thought it maybe had something to do with the altitude as it affected my breathing, but im not sure. research precordial catch syndrome. i sort of related to it but not all of it, maybe it could though with you. even though i didnt really give you a diagnosis i hope i gave you comfort in that you're not alone!!!! :)
