So I've been on here before. After nearly 2 weeks and my doc telling me the pain under my right rib and round to the back was stress it's still there. Bloods clear ultra sound of kidneys clear so where is this pain coming from. I don't feel as stressed so why is pain not easing?? It feels like a stitch between I bend it's as if something under ribs not there all the time it comes and goes.

    It sounds like a muscle or trigger point in the back is acting up.  Also costocondritis, its a muscle problem in the ribs between the ribs, it will almost feel like its bruised and taking a deep breath can cause pain, laying on the efected side will make it hurt.  There are many trigger points in the back that can cause rib pain and the points have referral pain that they send out so the point in one part can be the problem.  Mine is the point just outside the shulder blade and it sends it thru the rib under my arm and into my arm.

      Yeah lying on it makes it worse. The job I do has alot of lifting so I suppose it could be muscle plus it moves around and does feel like bruising at times. I just worry about it all the time. Heat helps but painkillers not so much.

    Oh the things we get. Ache here, pain there. We've all had stitch in the side. If you've had blood work, and all looks good, and your not an anxious person,just take naproxen, or Ibuprofen, and this too shall pass
