Nothing serious: It's likely your soreness in different areas are unrelated to each other. It's not uncommon for people to have soreness in one or more areas without recalling an obvious cause. If the soreness is recent it will likely disappear in a week or two and no need to be concerned. However if it is persistent or getting worse then you should see your physician to be sure nothing important is causing it.

All on left side?: You're young at 28, but a pattern of spots on one side of the body suggests shingles or herpes zoster. If so, you could develop more pain than soreness. Best to get checked because some medications can help to prevent this developing and others can help manage the pain.
