Why do the whole left side of my body ache?

Why do the whole left side of my body ache?

Doctor can examine: Normal, healthy people don't get aches without a reason, so if the entire left side of one's body ached, but the right side was fine, that would be very strange.

So, don't delay. If it's still painful over this area, it won't get better faster w/o med care. ...Read more
