Pain under left rib cage
I'm new here. Many of you have posted on left rib cage pain, but I didn't see any posts that quite fit mine.
For the last 3 weeks I've had this dull ache under my left rib cage. Doctor said I strained a muscle, but Ibuprofen doesn't relieve symptoms. If I lay on my back, the symptoms seem to go away. Laying on my side, sitting tends to irritate it. Walking, exercise doesn't seem to bother it either. During stressful times it seems to worsen. For some strange reason the pain seems to be more noticeable on the weekends and to heat exposure, hot showers, if my hand is holding it too long, etc...
My diet hasn't changed. I don't eat too bad. I drink 2-3 drinks on the weekends. I also noticed a post that someone wrote about drinking cocoa. I drink a powdered cocoa M-F in the morning.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
Thank you!
