Doctor insights on:
Left Side Stomach Heaviness
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. The one organ on the left side of your abdomen that is a concern for internal injury is your spleen, but that occurs with trauma to the spleen, not with just lifting. If nausea, fever, vomiting, see MD. ...Read more

Evening, I have severe loss of feeling around my back and through my stomach all on my left side. I am a fit 42 year old, not over weight.
There are a couple: Of points in your question that make it concerning to me. One is that the sensation, or lack of sensation, you describe seems to be very localized and discrete/precise suggesting to me that a specific nerve or set of nerves may be compromised. Also you use the word severe which people usually reserve for something quite significant. This needs PROMPT (now) evaluation to exclude nerve compression. ...Read more
