pain under the left ribs is often from excessive stomach acid causing inflammation of the stomach called gastritis
drinking alcohol, tomato sauce, oily or fried foods, spicy foods, sodas, fatty foods, poor diet, junk food can all worsen stomach acid production
often times stomach acid reducing agents like maalox, mylanta, zantac, tagamet can help reduce stomach acid and help your symptoms
