Patient :I just ran in a cross country meet. I ran for only 2 miles. A while after the race, I had a sharp pain in my lower left abs, just right above the hip. This pain has persisted for the last 5 hours now, and I'm confident that it isn't a side-stitch. What is it that I'm experiencing?
Symptoms: Every time I put pressure on my left side, the pain gets sharper.
