      Pain under my ribs

      Every now and then, I will feel a separating like pain under my ribs. This only happens every now and then and happened a lot more when i was younger. It is kind of hard to explain, it kind of feels like my ribs are being ripped apart from each other and only happens (when it is happening, it happens now only maybe 2 times a year) when I inhale or bend so that my ribs move.

      Obviously, this is not life threatening, else i would have died many years ago, but does anyone know what this is or ever feel it? I ask because it just happened to me.

      I cant believe there are people asking medical advice through the internet! Go to a doctor mate.

      I get annoyed when people tell me to go to the doctor lol Especially for questions like this one.
      I call these types of questions "medical curiosities". It's something a person will wonder about, but it's not bad enough to see a doctor about.
      I use to drive my friends and family bonkers with these questions. They'd call me a worry-wart or hypercondriact. But what's wrong with being curious?

      I don't know what causes such pain. I get something simliar, though less now-a-days. I would get them when I was highly fatigued and had to drive for hours on end. If I changed my position (placed a pillow behind my back to the point my lower chest and stomach actually stuck out some) the discomfort subsided somewhat.
      Do you notice if your doing something in particular when it happens?

      That can happen if you're dehydrated.

      So,wondering about a pain at the ribcage that doesnt go away is...medical curiosity! You can almost never say if a pain is something serious or not unless you are a doctor and examine the patient closely. Also, taking medical advice from an expert has nothing to do with hypochondriasis, on the contrary, its the best option you have.

      Perhaps, sometimes i am too lazy to get something to drink when i am thirsty, but it doesn't normally happen when i am thirsty, or at least I don't notice that I am thirsty

      Yes, actually that is what i do. I stick out my stomach and it mostly goes away. only thing is if I breath deep then it come back really sharp. Also it is becoming less frequent over time and does happen when I am fatigued most of the time. Me and you may be experiencing the same thing.

      Lol, it goes away eventually. it just stays for a few hours at a time, it only comes back every now and then.

      Very interesting
      For me, the pain goes away after I get a good few hours of sleep which is why I've always connected it to fatigue.
      It gets worse when I breathe in deeply as well.

      Sometimes group experience is reassuring in and of itself. It's not a wanting of "medical advice", just a curiosity if others know what you're talking about lol and a sharing of information.
      If this was something prolonged, life altering or crippling, I'd be among the first to say "Go see a doctor!".
