This is Dr. Davidthis stitch like pain under both sides of your ribs in the front could be due to gastritis inflammation of your stomach, usually from too much stomach acid.certain foods can worsen stomach acid production.have you tried any over the counter antacids, acid reducers, acid blockers to see if this helps with that stitch pain?
