Hello not sure if this is heart related or not I'm wonder what this cramping, sharp pain sensation in my upper left ribcage is. It's located on the end of my ribcage towards the center of my abdomin (abdomen). I thought it was a cramp but it comes and goes almost everyday and today it's lasted all day. It's about 3 inches in diameter and pain is about 7 out of 10...gets worse if I jog or walk a lot. Again it's not a deep throbbing pain it's more like a stabbing cramp pain. It's came and gone for the last 3 weeks. I'm 22 yrs old, male, hypertension (controlled now)...please help
Call your doctor -- sooner rather than later. I'm concerned that it is worse when you exert. Better safe than sorry. I sometimes have painsin that general area that are pressure and pinching type, but they are related to digestive upset and I have been told are from the splenic flexure. Good luck -- let us know how you are.
