I was needing some advice on a problem I have been having. I have been getting a pain on my mid abdomen on my left side just below my ribcage. it seems to wrap around to my side and the left side of my back under my rib cage. I've had this throbbing pain and I notice that it helps if I stretch the opposite way. (spread my legs a bit, touch my right toes with right hand and left harm vertically straight) it helps greatly but once I stop the pain comes back. I'm not sure if this is related, but long before this started, about a month before, I've noticed that I can no longer sleep on my stomach because in the morning my mid back hurts severely in the same spot (under rib cage) but both the left and right side.. Please help!

The pain which you are experiencing can be due to variou sreasons as gastritis,kidney issues,inflammation in the rib cage etc.
Since it has been long you are having the pain kindly do not ignore it and get yourself examined by a Physician.USG scan would help in the diagnosis.
