    this hasn't been the first time i have had this although it was never quite like this. ever since last night i have randomly started getting very bad pain just under the left side on my ribs. it hurts to breathe and i need to lie down until it passes. does anyone know what it could be?

      I used to have that, and it turns out it was gas, produced from my intolerance to lactose. Also, if you're allergic to gluten, wheat, or even have IBS,

      There are a few things it could be,Kidney or bladder infections, are common. Ive had both and my symptoms were the same. Make sure that when you have to go to the bathroom, you do at that very minute. Holding it in can cause infections. Also, my lab teacher once told me she had to get her bladder removed because she was having sharp pains under her ribs. Something MAY be wrong with your bladder. Im not a doctor, but just trying to help with past experiences. Hope you feel better soon!

      However, the pain could be from something else, so I would highly recommend going to visit your doctor. It's better to be safe than sorry.
