Pain under the right and left ribcage could originate from the stomach, duodenum or gallbladder. Several diagnostic procedures are required to identify the reason for the pain such as: blood analyses (blood count, liver status, renal status, Helicobacter pylori-serology…), abdominal ultrasound, gastroscopy, etc. You can consult an internist about your pain and request the diagnostics.
