Sharp Pain Deep Within left side, Ribcage & Back

Can't get comfortable when laying down; would sleep in recliner if had one. Whenener lift torso up, as in getting up off couch = sharp dull pain. Does not hurt when a hand presses into area - left side rib midsection and left side of back - as pain deeper inside. Does not hurt when raise left arm. Hurts when take a deep breath.

Presumptive diagnosis and recuperative suggestions ?
