It feels like there's something under my lowest rib (or it could possibly be the rib itself) on the right side. sometimes it feels numb and like something is floating around, and other times it seems to pop in and out of place? Laughing, anxiety, and deep breaths usually causes it to hurt, and I can't lay on my right side or my back without feeling uncomfortable. It's only been happening since I started working (about a year ago). I can't remember ever falling or getting hurt at work but I do have to lift boxes that weigh up to 50 pounds and I myself am only 90 pounds. I also started sleeping on a really old mattress at about the same time. I don't know what it could be but it seems to cause me discomfort more often than it originally did.
