    I'm glad you posted this. I'm going through the same thing right now only thing is mine is located in the middle of my back at the level of my ribs and sometimes refers to the front just below my breasts. It's so uncomfortable.

    Yes! I ended up getting a full major organ body ultrasound because of it. Nothing showed other than a benign cyst on my left ovary. It could have been there for years. Still have to go back in may to get it rescanned. But charlie horse rib pan is an accurate description!

    I experience the same thing when I bend down to tie my shoe as well. It feels like something shifted above my ribs. Not sure what it is, but it's disturbing.
