Hi. So I've been back and forward to the docs a few times over the past 6mths about this. It started in November. I took a kick to the left rib area and went to A&E a few days later where the doc said I had a spring rib. I didn't agree with him because I can remember a few weeks before this it felt uncomfortable in that area. Anyway he made me feel it and it felt like lumpy muscles to me. Fast forward to a few weeks ago and I've still got the uncomfortable feeling under my ribs and it's now a pain which is spreading to my left shoulder blade. Today I felt the lumpiness in my abdomen (it's sort of under the left rib but a bit further down and more to the side) again. I doesn't feel spongy, it feels hard. Like I have to press and run my fingers down my skin to feel the lumps. And they feel exactly like they did when I had an apparent sprung rib. Ive been trying to feel the opposite side to see if I have lumps there and I think I do but nowhere near as prominent. I've been to the urgent care center today for some antibiotics for a cyst (don't squeeze cysts by the way lol) and I asked the doc if she would feel it. She said there could be a lump there as there was "fullness" there and to go to my docs on Monday. I suffer from anxiety a bit so I'm an absolute wreck now and have self-diagnosed allsorts. Any ideas what it could be
