I have pain just under my rib cage right side. Seems to travel up to my back under my shoulder blade. Thought I pulled a muscle, but it has been 9 days. Who do I see to figure this one out!

Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Since your pain is on the right side of the ribs and not the left, you are less likely to have a heart issue but I would contact your doctor straight away for a check up.
At best it actually is a pulled muscle but it could also be a liver or pancreatic problem.
