Question:

Left Sided Abdominal Pain

Dear Ask The Doctor:
Sudden lower left abdominal pain that radiates to back,nausea, increase saliva what could this be


Answer:

Pain located on the left side of the abdomen could be indicative of peptic ulcer disease, gastritis, kidney stones, abdominal muscle strain. My advise would be to take pain killers like advil or motrin to see if this help to relieve the pain. If your symptoms worsen, you may need to book an urgent appointment with your doctor or go to the ER.
