Had stabbing sharp pain on left side between waist and rib cage. Stabbing pain went away but is still tender to the touch?

In brief: Muscular

Tenderness to the touch usually implies injury to rib or muscle.
Sometimes a muscle tear or injury can be very uncomfortable. I would recommend trying a few days of an anti inflammatory (ie motrin, advil).
