    Pain under back side of right ribs

    I just started having this terrible pain recently. It hurts to swift at all or bend over. Sometimes it even hurts if you touch it. It is on my back on the right side under the middle of my ribs. It is killing me and feels like it's under them, not the skin or anything over them. Please help me!

    There is no way for anyone over an internet message board to know what that could be. You need to see a doctor asap for evaluation and treatment.

    If cost is an issue, look into free or low-cost clinics in your area. If it becomes an emergency then get to a local hospital emergency room right away. They must treat you regardless of ability to pay.

    I hope you can get this resolved soon.
