Customer Question

I have pain on my left lower side. In bed if I lean to the left it is sharp and will stop if I lay on my back. Bed is elevated . For 2 night and today it is painful if I press the area a bit. Had my appendix removed 54 yrs ago. Feels like that pain.

This can be a problem with the colon.

Or the ovary.

This can be quite serious, such as with a tumor.

You need an exam and CT at this point.

If this is more toward the back, it can be a kidney problem....?CT

This can also be a problem with a lower spine disc, which would need an MRI.
