A Few Medical Problems That Can Cause Pain Under The Left Ribs

There are a lot of people who complain of aches under their left ribcage, and the type of these sensations can range from severe to mild to a dull aching. However, these individuals typically lack knowledge regarding the factors or causes that contributed to the development of their disease. The human rib cage has twelve ribs on each side, and another twelve are located on the left side of the body. This is done to protect the organs that are located below the ribs. A painful sensation that can be felt under the left rib is caused when any of these organs become infected or affected due to a sustained injury. This pain can be caused by a number of different conditions. In this essay, I'd want to spend some time discussing the factors that can lead to pain located under the left ribcage.

1. The ailment being discussed here Under the left rib, pain is often brought on by costochondritis, an inflammation of the cartilage that joins the rib to the breastbone. This condition is one of the primary reasons for this type of pain.

2. Pancreatitis, a medical condition that affects the pancreas and causes it to become infected or inflamed, is another reason for pain in the left rib. Pancreatitis affects the pancreas and causes it to become infected or inflamed.

3. A person will feel pain in the left rib when they have a ruptured spleen as a result of an injury or a severe medical condition. Both of these scenarios can cause a spleen to burst.

4. When there is an infection or inflammation of the lining of the stomach, a sharp pain will be felt near the left side of the rib cage. Although bacteria are the source of the sickness, excessive alcohol consumption and drug usage are also potential contributors to the inflammation. These drugs have the potential to cause gastroitis, a medical condition in which the lining of the stomach gets irritated and causes pain in the left rib cage.

5. Pain in the left ribs may also be caused by kidney infections or the effects of kidney stones; these conditions, if they are not treated promptly by a doctor, have the potential to become very painful.
