In brief: See Dr/need info
Left side of abdomen has the spleen, the colon but maybe pain radiating from the stomach, pancreas, others.
We need to know the characteristics of the pain: severity (0-10) aliviating factors ( eating food, antacids, vomiting, moving bowels), what makes it worst, what is it like( colic, stabbing, dull) associated symptoms ('fever, diarrhea, constipation, dissension, hard abdomen) . What is your hx.
