Was lifting a heavy box onto another box vertically & to the right. Felt momentary left side abdominal pain for 0.5 sec. Any chance internal injury?

Unlikely: Most likely an abdominal muscle strain as it occurred with lifting. If you can reproduce the pain by stretching that area or with flexing of those muscles, it is a likely a muscle strain.

Hello, I am having a sudden onset of lower left side abdominal pain. It is aggravated by applying pressure to the rectum and also lifting my left leg?

I think you should see a surgeon and be examined and most likely you will need a CT-scan and a colonoscopy. CT-scan will show many other possible causes of this pain. In women, diseases of the ovary (eg abscess, tumor etc) can cause this type of pain. ...Read more
