What are these weird pains I get in my middle left rib cage (read more)?

There is just this one spot on my rib cage that hurts really bad at random points of the day. I have no idea when it will happen, but when it does.. it KILLS. During math class last week it happened and i almost passed out because every time i breathe it hurts so bad, so i tried to limit my breathing. I havnt told my parents because i didnt think it was a big deal.. so what do you think it is?

Answer #1

Cud b ur appendix, its best to have it checked by a doc

Answer #2

the appendix is in the lower right across from your belly button.. these pains are in the exact opposite area so i dont think its that. but thanks anyways.. i should probably get it checked out

Answer #3

Sorry wasn’t much help

Answer #4

I get this weird pain sometimez. It hurts to breath so i breath really shallow. But i have learned if i take a really deep breath it kinda pops then is better… it may be an air pocket? Im not sure but i think i know what u mean. Next time try that and see. It hurts but push through it fast and deep with ur breath. Might be what it is. Definitely get it checked on tho
