recurring Stomach/Rib pain - should I see GP?

I dont really know if this is worth seeing a doctor about - a few times i've found that if i bend or twist i suddenly get this deep feeling pain under my left rib, it doesnt feel on the surface but internal, obviously I might sound dramatic but it feels like my ribs have dug into somewhere they shouldn't. I've never had this before the last couple of weeks.

Im a bit nervous about going to the GP cos i dont know if this is normal - I've gained a little weight lately so it could be that, but its worrying me as its happened a couple of times now.

To rule anything serious out go and see your GP. They would rather you do this than suffer and wont mind at all.

It sounds like a pulled muscle - these can be incredibly painful. If it doesn't begin to improve in another couple of weeks I would make an appointment with your GP or the practice nurse, just to rule out any other causes.
