Doctor can examine: If one has very uncomfortable tummy pain, and is normally in good health, the possibilities include: constipation (crampy) (is common), stomach flu (is common), appendicitis (usually R lower abdomen), diverticulitis, kidney stone (very painful), abdominal tumor, etc... Most people with "moderate pain," more than mild pain, may need a doctor's evaluation to be sure it is not something serious.

Diverticulitis?: As Dr Kwok had mentioned, pain at the left lower quadrant is often associated with diverticulitis even though it is not that common at your age. If the pain is severe or fails to improve after a few days and you have a tendency to get constipated, see your doctor to get treated.

If persists, see MD.: It is probably nothing serious but certainly if it continues it deserves attention and evaluation. I would recommend seeking help from your local internal medicine physician or gastroenterologist.
