I've recently noticed that, when sitting down and kind of slumped (not as upright as possible), I start to get numb under my right rib. If I stand up straight it usually goes away, it's like I'm pressing on something and it's going numb...? It's bad when driving. I'm overweight by about 40 lbs and that could be the issue, just wondering if anyone else knows what this could be. Been googling forever and can't find anything that talks about what could be causing this.
