For the past month I've been having very sharp pains underneath my ribs on the right side, about where my stomach is, nearly every time I exert myself (even slightly).  It started as a stich one night when I went out dancing with friends, but it just won't go away.  I'm a reasonably healthy, 20 year old girl.... I don't feel like I should be having a problem like this.  I did some research about ulcers, and I read that I may be at an increased risk for them because I have type O blood, I tend to skip meals and eat unhealthy food (due to a busy/weird schedule.. but nonetheless), I only recently quit smoking, and I am pretty stressed (again because of the busy/weird schedule).  Before researching ulcers, that's what I thought I have just because of how stressed out I am all the time.  But I don't get any pains when I eat, the pains don't wake me up in the middle of the night, I don't have black stools, and I haven't felt the need to vomit because of the pain.  I work out as often as I can, but a pain like this never occured before that night at the club.  It feels exactly like when you get a stich from running for too long.  I've tried to do extra abdominal exercises to help fix the problem, but that only makes it worse.  Any ideas??

Sounds like you need to take a break and see a doctor. A qualified physician can lay you on your back and press around on your mid-section and tell alot more than we could. You may have pulled a muscle which would possibly get better with some rest and anti-inflammatory meds or it could be something else altogether. If it has been going on for a month it probably wouldn't hurt to see your family doctor. Good luck and welcome!!!

Yes, I agree go into see your doctor, then maybe try a heating pad, just curl it up (heating pad) and hold it under your
chest...but see what the doctor thinks first...
Hope your feeling better soon
