I have been experiencing pressure on the left side of my abdomen under my rib cage off and on now for a couple of months. It's there more often than not but it changes in intensity, sometimes I barely notice. There's no pain, just feels like a big bubble or something inside. I asked my PCP about it and she said that it could be excessive stool and to try increasing my liquid and fiber intake. I have regular bowel movements. The only concern I have is that I know my spleen is located in that area. I am otherwise healthy, decent blood pressure and I passed my physical last year with flying colors. Any input on this would be appreciated!
