I am having a pulse-like sharp pain in the left side of my stomach. I do smoke and sometimes drink a lot, but i have GERD too.
I never had the pain as often as i do now.
Also it feels like there is a rash but in the inside of my stomach; kind of wierd.
I am going to the doctor soon but just wanted some feedback.
Thanks for posting your query, and I am sorry to learn of your "weird" pulse-like left sided abdominal pain.

Any change in the color of your stool, or any feelings of incomplete emptying? What about your appetite...any decreased appetite or unintended weight loss recently?
Any history of kidney stone in the past or family history of kidney stones?
The two top possible diagnosis or cause of the pulse-like left side abdominal pain you describe could be:
I am pleased to know that you already have an appointment with your doctor. See him / her and I am sure the picture will become clearer.
