Hello, I have a little pain and a stretching sensation in my lower left ribcage. I have this problem from about 1 year. I used to exercise really hard at that time when this pain started. What can be the case? Thanks.

I guess, it is purely functional/physiological, as you said you were doing strong exercises by that time, might be due to stress, strain caused to that rib cage, musculo-skeleton part. If still you r doing in the same way, try to reduce those pace,& observe, any improvement isthere. If to rule out any doubt, you can go for all general checkup.

Due to strain due to hard exercise apply ice pack and hot pack. Tk muscle relaxant medicine ya physiotherapy treatment.
