Left Sided Pain: If you have no other symptoms like fever nausea or bloating you are probably ok. But when is the last time you had a bowel movement? Constipation can cause left sided pain. Also are in the ovulatory part of your cycle you may also experience pain when a follicular is about to burst. If you have no other symptoms consider taking Acetominophen or Ibuprofen to see if the pain is alleviated. Read more

I was just diagnosed by endoscopy with hiatal hernia, GERD, and erosive gastritis. Would any of these cause pain in the left side waist/flank area?

No: These would not typically cause flank pain. If you are flexing your trunk muscles in response to your GERD symptoms, you may have some muscle stain, but that's as close as it gets. Hope this helps! Read more

I'm having what feels like pinched nerve pain on my waist left side only. Have some spots on my left side that is numb. What should I do?

Shingles possible: Red marks that are bumpy or blistery and associated with pain are often shingles. If there is a rash or bumpy skin, most likely. Antivirals work best early in onset of the symptoms. If you have not had, I would suggest the shingles vaccine. If otherwise doesn't radiate, and not shingles, could be disc herniation low thoracic region. Try nsaid's, rest, ice/heat, and seek doc if not getting better. Read more
