What does it mean when you have pain in the left side of your body?

Asked Jan 24, 2012
It could be many things. Where it is located on your left side will make a difference too. High could be a lung problem, low could be colon or intestinal and in the middle a long list of possibilities including a strained muscle or gas. It most often takes more information than just the fact that it hurts to determine the cause. See a doc if it persists.

Definitely see a doctor if you're really concerned about it.

Your doctor's office or health insurance company may have a free nurse line that you can call to ask questions. Find out. You can also check with your local social services office for info if cost is a factor.

If you have a serious medical issue, it's better to consult with a doctor who can actually examine you.

The entire left side or a certain area? There are a lot of possible answers to that question. I would need more specifics in order to give you a solid theory. Of course in case your pain is serious, visiting an actual physician would be the best thing to do.
