In brief: Twisting pain in rib
On the left side, "twisting" pains, usually some kind of cramp, reflects colonic peristalsis (your colon trying to move some stool along).
If you feel constipated, take a good laxative. The best one is miralax, (polyethylene glycol) 1 capful of powder in a glass of water or juice, once a day.
