Hi all,Do any off you get a pain under your left side rib cage just below your breast? I'm having a flare right now and wondering if anyone else has this problem or is it something else I'm going to have to contend with? The following are my list of woes----iritis,ankloysing spondolitis and as off 3 years ago ulcerative colitis.
Thank you for listening.

I sometimes get pain just a little lower down than that. I always attributed it to gas build up.

I've been getting pains in the same region - but I'm newly diagnosed & this is only my first flare so I don't know if it's a normal thing for me yet. It's quite a sharp pain
