Thank you for your patience.

A pain which increases when you are active and decreases when you are at rest is usually due to a muscle strain.

Muscle strain can occur due to exercise , lifting of heavy objects or even y sudden movement.

The left side of the stomach will also hurt if you have gastritis (inflammation of the inner lining of the stomach) but this will not calm on lying down.

Please apply a warm pack on the painful site for 5 minutes . Also take Brufen 200 mg twice a day after food for at least 3 days . This should help relieve the pain.

I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you, and that I have earned my 5 star rating today! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen (rating me now does not close your question). We can continue here until you are satisfied, simply use the reply box and let me know. Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
