I get a feeling that's similar to that its on the same side too but it feels like a gas pain or something. But of course I worry that's its other stuff iif it weren't for the fact that I recently had tests run I would think its something serious. I always say check with your PCP anyway to make sure.
This too shall pass...

Nellebutter has a good suggestion that it could possibly a gas pain. I have a chronic inflammatory bowel disease and when I get pain on the left side, it is almost always from gas. I agree that if you are concerned called your family doc. Good luck!

I agree w/the others that you should call your PCP. I have this pain due to my IBD and myofacial pain syndrome (chronic pain). It could be a pulled muscle too. Do you pick up a small child ever? That could do it.

Oh I get that pain every time its close to my period. Oh wow does it hurt.

I also found out when I get it on off times that it is because my bra is way to tight. And I'll loosen it and it goes away in an hour or so. Rubbing from the bra can cause it to be painful along with it being to tight cuts off blood flow. And affects the muscles in the area. Will be tendor to the touch.

But again it can be gas as well as I have the same problem A good sprite to make me burb helps a LOT. Natural burbing is so much better then a forced one.

weel i get it too and so does my boyfriend. For us, according to my massage therapist & his chiropractor, it is a pulled muscle. There is a large muscle that runs from the back just below your "wing" and runs around to the front.
