I feel like there is something under my left rib cage,it's not pain just feels like something is pushing against me.
If I take my left hand and grab and squeeze in that location it will go away for a few seconds.
Been to the stomach doctor and he is clueless,he gave me some kind of antiacids to take.
It comes and goes.Sometimes I will eat and it will start up again.Thought maybe someone else has had this problem and has found out what has caused it.

Thanks Mike A.

Re: Feel's Like There Is Something Under My Left Rib Cage
Hi,
I know exactly what you mean. I have the same problem. I have been dealing with this problem for ten years. It feels like something is stuck there. Not painful, but extremely uncomfortable. Let me tell you, I also pushed oneday to get rid of it, and it does make if feel better. I now push daily. A doctor told me that it was air trapped in my stomach. You can actually here it when I push on it. It is terrible, and I am still going to doctors, to try and figure out how to get rid of it. If you have the same problem I have, take care of it now. It has gotten so much worse for me. It use to be a problem that comes and goes. Now, after ten years, it is everyday non stop. Take care of it now, so you don't have to go through what I go through.

Same left side bubbles
It seems like my entire stomach shifted to underneath my left rib cage. It all started a few years back when, after moving some heavy things, I noticed my belly button which used to be an inny was now and inny/outy. Half of my naval had a bulge. I can press on it and i will be squishy and go away but will come right back. After this problem I started to get pains on my lower right back and side off and on. Now the pain has shifted to my left side and it feels like bubbles of gas are rising up under my left rib cage also causing my left shoulder to be weak. What the heck is this thing? I feel like there is water in my chest and my stomach has not been the same since. It has also caused my psoriasis to flare up all over my body. When I drink water I feel like it is flowing directly into my chest cavity and not my stomach.I am going to try a small amount of food grade h2o2 to see if it makes a difference. I hope someone finds a cure for this. It is evidently causing a whole lot of stress on our bodies. could it possibly be an intestinal superbug?

re: left side bubbles
Ok, I chickened out on the h2o2 but I believe I have found the answer for all of our stomach ills. Well this one in particular. Google OPU HULI. Follow what the Lomi Lomi healer is doing and you will be cured. I did it to myself and my problem has dramatically been reduced. I will get a trained Lomi Lomi professional to do it next. I feel 90% better as if my body does not have to work so hard with it's digestion process. It appears that the stomach and intestines are able to shift around inside of us. The Hawaiians call it OPU HULI or stomach flip. Shifting them back to a more comfortable position is done by Lomi Lomi or massage in the stomach area. Good Luck everyone! It worked for me!

Interested in Lomi Lomi
Hi daveman:

I just read your post and I`m interested in knowing more about the Lomi Lomi massage. I feel my symptoms are very similar to yours and the others in here. I found nothing googling stomach flip. Did it really work for you? What kind of proffesional can practice that outside Hawaii? A chiropractor? I`m in South America. How about your symptoms? Did you feel shortness of breath and indigestion and water and bubbles in your stomach all the time? I do. Thanks for any help.

John.

Expecially when I press on it. Iv'e been to the doctor and he said it was gas. Well I dont beleive gas pain is right under you breast. Its been there for almost a year now! Hopefully I will get some answers one day! ~Julie~

Air beneath my ribs....
It seems as though I'm not the only one that feels this. Mine used to be beneath my left rib cage and you could actually see my skin in one area go up and down when a 'bubble' was released.. that's what it felt like. and you can hear it ake little muffled popping noises. It went away for a long while, maybe around a year. BUT now it's back and it doesn't hurt as bad as before but its more uncomfortable. This time its under my right rib cage. I get shortness of breath sometimes. No air 'bubbles' this time, but it feels like the same thing.

yeah i just had it happen when i sat down and leaned down and kind of twisted to look out the window-i burped a lot as i was drinking organic vinegar and water-then a ate a pot pie-big mistake i think-but i think it stomach or intestines got out of position as they say it can happen binding and twisting and stuff-i think the chiropractor be the best bit if not get better-they know where to massage and reposition stuff if it doesnt do it own its own soon

leelapad - I am also experiencing similar discomfort on left side. My left lung collapsed twice back in 1990. I wonder if it is some kind of gas that shouldn't be there like Pleurisy?? What do you think? Let me know what your Dr says.. I also have MVP.. I explained this pain to my primary care Physician. I was given an EKG in the office and am now waiting for a referral the the cardiologist.. Seems like a waste of time and money if its gas. Smile

Where my left ribs are i get spasms. It first happened when i was at yoga just bending and touching my toes. It was like my stomach locked and as i slowly stood up i felt it release slowly with me taking deep breaths through it.I also felt it going up back into place as i stood up .Everyone thought i was having a heart attack.Since then if i bend suddenly with out bending my knees properly it happens again, and also the other day when i was constipated on the loo !! Doctor does not know what it is , can anyone help me?!!

Re: Air bubbles in my stomach!
I have that same problem under my right ribcage. I was diagnosed with IBS 7 years ago and was told to eat right and take in fiber. You have to do just that to get rid of it. It's trapped air or gas that's all. But I bought a supplement from Walgreens called Acidophilus and it gets rid of gas, bloating, constipation and irregularity. You take one capsule a day and it has yogurt in it. Also get you some Activia Yogurt and eat 3 containers a week, this really helps. I been doing this for a month and I feel better. You see the intestines needs water to absorb throughout the body and if you are not drinking enough water, the body is dehydrating itself even though you don't feel it. Drink more water, about 8 glasses a day. Good Luck!

I'm 14, and this happens to me too! it's so annoying! and I can never find a way to get rid of it! It happens more when I'm lay down, either on my stomach or on my back. it also causes me shortness in breath, and now, I take much more longer and stronger breaths, when I don't even feel the need for one. like someone said before, my left shoulder when all dodgy too. as if it was completely weak. it's really weird! but considering lots of people have said that they have had it for a long time.. I guess I don't really need to worry. I mean, hopefully it's not too serious? it's just annoying isn't it! Feel like a big.. thing under my left rid.. I just want it to go awaaaaaaay! it's not near my breast, but it's quite close. I haven't any pain, it's Just weird! Kind of makes you feel hungry, but your not.. oh god, i want it gone!

movement under left rib
For the past two months I've been feeling the very same symptons mentioned here. No pain, but unusual movement like right under my last left rib. At first I thought I was pregnant cause it felt like flutterings of a baby. My doctor said it was gas. Recommended more fiber and liquids. However, I'm not buying it cause I do take in fiber and drink plenty of water. I gonna give it a few more weeks and I'm seeing a specialist or something. I just want this strange feeling gone. Any feedback, or advice welcomed.

I have this same pain under my left ribcage. Sometimes its unbearable. I had tons of tests done and my doctor said it's trapped gas and there is nothing that can be done. I found that the only thing that helps sometimes is a heating pad...it gets the air bubbles moving. The doctor diagnosed me with Splenic Flexure Syndrome. I've been researching this form of IBS to see if there is anything to help.
