Pain below left ribcage

I was unable to find the exact area of pain until now. I have been suffering from pain (gentle) in the left upper ribcage and was uncertain what caused it as the pain as it was not in the same place (sometimes in the back both upper and below). So I started laying down Turing right side to avoid pain in the upper left while lying down I touched  below the left rib cage I felt pain and passed gas which relieved me and I felt the same way when I pressed at the upper back it too helped me release gas and felt better. But the pain below rib cage comes and goes. Not sure what is happening as I tend to panic for reason and this small pain does not go unnoticed.

Pain above stomach heavyness rips center

I've been having pain above stomach and heaviness in chest. I have consulted doctor and the BP is high 170/110.

Trouble Breathing

I have been having some trouble breathing since quite some time. Most of the times, it is nothing but sometimes I have to wait and breath air deeply through my mouth 2-3 times to feel normal/full again. From time to time, I also feel a slight sensation of pain in my chest. Very slight, but it does happen, on the left upper side. Side note: I have had historically high hemoglobin, (in the ranges of 17-18.4, I got checked by a hematologist who did blood tests and it came back all clear). I am a 20 year old male with normal weight and height.
