Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Do you have any nausea, vomiting?

Left sided pain can be due to the intestinal problem --Inflammation, infection even colon polyps can cause this.

Upper stomah problem like peptic ulcer disease is another common cause --endoscopy will show that,.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
