Muscle spasm under rib cage



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?


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