Several poss. causes: Not enough detail in your question for me to be truly helpful :( it would help to know whether the pain is directly on the side (could be muscular, colon, for ex.); in the rib cage (could be lung-related or intercostal muscles, dysfunctional rib) or below it (could be spleen). Is it more to the front or more in the back (poss. Kidney-related or muscle spasm), etc. More detail = better answer.
