Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.

I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Do you notice visible swelling on your left lower side?

If yes, then this can be an abdominal hernia.

The intestine can bulge out and can sink in with position change.

Given the pain and sudden onset definitely needs an urgent evaluation.

This is to prevent any strangulation of hernia if present.

Best wishes,

It was my pleasure to help you today.
