In brief: Maybe

Patients with thoracic lateral discs complain of pain that wraps around their back and can go to the abdomen region.
Usually when it comes from a thoracic disc it is a sharp shooting type pain. However if you have only left upper abdominal pain this may not have anything to do with a disc as several other things can cause this. Please see your pmd.
