sharp pains under the last of my ribs, left side. Any ideas?

Going off pictures I found on google, it looks like the area of the spleen or pancreas. I've had sharp pains the last three days. Its getting pretty painful though. Any ideas what it could be?
Thank you :)

  • The most common cause is lower ribs that are out of position (subluxated). Usually a chiropractic adjustment on the rib cage should clear this up.

  • I have had the same thing happening on and off for the last 16 years. It could also be your stomach. Do you have a history of stomach ulcers? If the pain is really severe, go to the doctor and let them figure out what's wrong. I still haven't found out what causes mine.
