Anything: Most people think their whole abdomen is their stomach, but the stomach is in the upper middle or upper left of the abdomen. If your lower abdomen hurts, that could be your skin, muscles, bladder, uterus, or intestines. If the upper part of your abdomen hurts, it could be acid reflux, pancreatitis, or other problems. See a doctor for an assessment. ...Read more

Sharp pain on lower and upper left side of stomach, extreme fatigue, bad bruising, aches in my forearms and shins. Wont have insurance till jan. What?

Could be trouble...: A person with lots of bruises, but with no reason for them... Plus extreme fatigue... And pain in the left abdomen (the spleen is on the left)... Plus aching arms and legs... Could have something bad going on in the blood. The platelets could be very low, making it hard for the blood to clot. A doctor needs to check in such a situation. If one has no doctor, then the E.R. Is the place to go now. ...Read more

I have a severe sharp pain in the lower left side of my abdomen, just behind or maybe in my rib cage. Is there something i can do at home to fix this?

No short answer: I hope it is a muscular strain and can be helped by heatseveral times a day. In the rib cage would be more in the mid to upper abdomen. I do not like it being a severe sharp pain, if it is other than brief you should seek medical attention. It could be diverticulitis (an infected pocket in the intestine) and it may be ruptured. ...Read more
