I have noticed some people in the forums have had pains under their left rib cage. Ihave a dull to sharp pain under my solar plexus area to the right and just beneath the edge of my ribcage. The pain sometimes increases through the day or if i lean over. It almost feels sometimes as if there is a foriegn object there. This has been going on for 2 weeks now.
I don't know if it is related but I have an intolerence now to spicy foods. I get heartburn and sometimes acidy hiccups. But as I said I am unsure if it is related because I generally avoid those kinds of foods now.
According to the symptoms you report (âdull to sharp pain under the solar plexus area to the right and just beneath the edge of my ribcageâ, âintolerance to spicy foodsâ, âheartburn and sometimes acidy hiccupsâ), you could be experiencing some type of stomach disorder such as gastritis, peptic ulcer or a hiatus hernia. Gallbladder disorders (stones, inflammation) are also possible. You can visit your primary health provider for a preliminary examination and diagnostic procedures.
