Reasons why you feel pain under your left ribs

According to Healthline, Pain under the left ribcage is extremely common, and while it can vary in intensity from severe to a mild ache to a constant aching, the reason of this pain is often unclear. The human rib cage has 24 ribs in total, 12 on each side; pain under the left rib may indicate damage to or sickness of an internal organ.

This article will go over four possible causes for the pain you're feeling under your left rib cage.

Inflammation of the cartilage that joins the rib to the breastbone, known as costochondritis, is a common source of pain under the left rib, as reported by Healthline.

Pancreatitis, an inflammation or infection of the pancreas, can also result in pain under the left rib. A ruptured spleen, brought on by trauma or severe sickness, typically causes pain in the left rib area.

Ache in the abdominal lining The area directly below the left rib cage is a common location to feel irritation. Infections are caused by bacteria, and inflammation is exacerbated by substance abuse and excessive alcohol consumption. If you have gastroenteritis, an infection of the stomach lining, you may experience a stabbing sensation to the left of your breastbone.

Extreme pain on the left side of the body is a common symptom of a kidney stone or infection that has not been treated quickly.
