Hello!There are different possible causes....I would advise that you ask your doctor as to symptoms + physical exam + urinalysis + abdominal CT scan ...A kidney stone might cause that combination of symptoms ...An aortic aneurysm might cause abdominal and back pain ( serious potential cause but not that likely I would not think at your age ) Enlarged spleen could be source as this organ is situated under left side ribcage I hope that this information is helpful for youLet me know if you have further questions or concernsI will be happy to get back with youIf my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedbackThank you and Best Regards,Anthony Bray MD
