No it just started this morning

Thanks for the information. You don't seem to have any other symptoms at this time. It does not sound like any thing serious. May be it's trapped gas or muscle pull, which can present with episodic mild pain. There are some other possible causes of pain in left side of abdomen depending upon the location such as diverticulitis, inflamed bowel, pancease or kidney related, pelvic organ related or constipation. Since you do not have any other symptoms, it's very difficult to say where this pain is coming from. You can increase your mobility, take care of constipation if you have it, and drink adequate water to ease your pain. You can also take OTC pain meds such as Tylenol or advil for pain control.

Regards,

Dr. Shah

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.
