Alright so ... since july//august of 2008, i've had this pain under my left ribs. Sometimes it switches to the right rib, or spreads through my body and i cant even move because its that painful. What its like is; its a stabbing pain, breathing in really deep is very painful, when i slouch over it helps [sometimes] and take small fast breaths. I've been to multiple doctors; hear doctors, lungs, i've gotten done a x-ray, and many other doctors. The pain can last from a minute, to a all day thing. Today its been the second time i've had it all day- since the moment i woke up. But I want to know what exactly is it? I have gone to the MAO clinic hospital and gotten examined; they said i was nothing. But to be completely honest; it is something. but what?

Maybe it is refered pain, and the problem is coming from your back somehow. I would see a chiropractor!
