I am having sharp pain under my right breast and around my rib cage area. What could this mean?
That's happened to me before, but it's really hard to say exactly what it is. It could be a number of things. If you're extremely worried, your best bet is to play it safe and head to the ER...but it'll most likely pass.
Broken rib, probably
If your in your teens, there are pains that happen when muscles pull away from the rib bones. This is part of growth. They hurt when you inhale deeply but aren't harmful and go away in a few days.
panic attack. though you should have other symptoms as well like shortness of breath and choking sensation. otherwise it may just be muscles tightening around the ribs.
It could be many things but if you have done any type of exercise , you might have pulled something or strained a muscle
