Hi and welcome.

This is most likely a muscular pain due to spasm of the muscle on your left side which functions while turning on side. All you need to do is that apply warm compresses over the muscle along with capsaicin cream thrice a day and take ibuprofen tablet three times a day. This would relieve spasm and would relieve pain.

Let me know if you have further questions.

I am a double board certified US doctor.

In fact you need an exam.

This can be a spinal disc problem, for example.

This is not self, home treatment.

See your doctor asap.
