Woke up this morning to sharp pains on my left side near my rib cage?

Varies. There are multiple potential causes. Structures there include your left lung, your pancreas, stomach and duodenum; it can also be a thoracic radiculopathy which is basically a pinched nerve in the mid back. Don't hesitate to be seen for an accurate diagnosis.
Sharp pain on left. Resolved? Was it upper or lower abdomen? Upper could be gas, constipation, costochondritis/pleurisy- inflammation viral/ bacterial of the joint/ covering of the lungs or gastritis( try a tablespoon of maalox) , rarely from a clot in the lung or splenic lesion. Lower may be gas/ constipation or from lumbar spine or kidney stone rarely at your age divereticulitis ( colon inflammation )F/u/ w/ do.
