You have to consult your doctor. A chronic pain plus constipation deserves investigation. The doctor may palpate your tummy, maybe order ultrasound or other testing, or x-rays. Don't try to diagnose yourself here with those signs.

Here are just a few of the possible reasons you may be feeling pain under the left rib cage:
Gluing gas in the colon - There is a possibility that you have gas trapped in the colon. The amount of gas that has become stuck may be excessive. You can usually feel the pain resonating from the upper left side of the abdomen to the left side of the rib cage.
Irritation in the spleen - There is a possibility that your spleen has already been broken due to several reasons and this can cause some pain in the left rib cage. In order to know if the type of pain you are experiencing is also due to this, you may also want to see if you are experiencing other symptoms such as pain in your left shoulder limbs.
Broken Rib - This is probably one of the most common reasons why you are experiencing pain under the left rib cage. There is a possibility that you feel pain under the left rib cage, because it has broken the rib. Ask yourself if you have been in any accident lately or if you have hit yourself unexpectedly. This may just be one of the reasons you've broken your ribs.

What can be the course of sharp stabbing pain left side under rib cage

It could be several different things. Sometimes it can be as simple as trapped gas (did you eat anything that might produce gas?). It can be a muscle spasm, a fatty spot on your omentum, lots of other things. You should do a search for your symptoms and read until you find which scenario best describes your issue.

Pain under left lower rib

Quite likely, if when breathing. Get along to a doctor in case it is an internal organ injured.

Im getting a light dull pain below my left rib cage, had it for about 10 days ?

Fixya is not a medical site. I suggest you consult a doctor instead. As that sounds like something that might need an examination.
