Pain under the left side of your rib cage extending to your belly button could be above the belt as well as below. Possibilities include rib fracture (any recent trauma?), pneumonia (cough, fever, sweats, chills?), and/or pneumothorax (air in wrong place in chest cavity). Any of the above could lead to difficulty breathing.
Peptic ulcer could present w/left upper quadrant pain as you described. With perforation, it could lead to an acute (surgical) abdomen and cause shortness of breath. Boerhaave's syndrome is esophageal rupture, typically from violent vomiting and could account for what you've described.
So could pancreatitis (excessively high triglycerides, alcohol, and/or gallstones?) and issues to your spleen (trauma, sickle cell, and/or mononucleosis). Diverticulitis is typically left lower quadrant but if the area of inflammation is more proximal, say close to the splenic flexure, that may account for the left upper quadrant pain. Kidney stones usually will be described as back pain but conceivable might cause some flank/ribcage pain.
As you can see, there are lots of things to consider. Best to seek a medical evaluation from your family physician. Good luck!
