Believe it or not, your stomach is located right below your rib cage on the left side, so your discomfort is exactly in your stomach area. I think it is likely that all the peanuts caused hypersecretion of acid in your stomach, and now you have a mild gastritis (inflammation of the stomach). I recommend to take some antacids (prilosec OTC is by far the best, XXXXX XXXXX will help if you have them) and eat a bland diet for the next few days. Avoid caffeine and alcohol during this time, as well as spices. With this treatment I'm confident your pain will resolve.
In the future, go easy on the peanuts!
Happy new year
