Muscle spasm under rib cage

08/21/2008

Question:

Hi, I`m a 30 yr old woman who recently noticed a fluttering feeling under left rib cage. It is very annoying. It is like a pulsation but is not regular . It comes and goes. There is no pain or any other symptom. It has been going on for three or four weeks now. I feel silly going to the Dr. for it because they would probably say it is nothing. It is like when you have a tic under your eye and it keeps twitching. Have you heard of anything similar to this before?

Answer:

Yes, but the doctor will want to check your mineral levels and for stomach problems.
