left side pain for 2 weeks

by lori
(Canada)

have had pain on my left side of my torso for about two weeks. sometimes more some than other times. sometimes severe when putting on boots or reaching for high objects.


i have had my galbladder removed and take an asprin every day. Otherwise i have never been on any other medications for any length of time.




Hi Lori,

I am sorry to learn about the pain on the "left side of my torso", on going for about two weeks. Does the pain remain just around the torso? Is it more to the back or side or front of your torso? Apart from movement, is there anything else that makes the pain worse? What about eat and drinking - has the pain affected this in any way? Are you opening your bowels normally and passing urine as usual? Is there any fever? Or do you feel quite well in yourself if not for the pain? Have you been involved in any sports or twisting movement or lifting in the last 2-3 weeks?

Is there perhaps something you are worried might be causing this pain?

From the brief information provided so far, the pain you described sounds very much like pain originating from muscle sprain. Is that what you thought it could be too?

It will however be best to see a qualified doctor or healthcare professional to physically examine you and make a firm diagnosis where possible.

Please do not hesitate to let us know how things went.

Looking forward to hearing back from you soon.

Best Wishes.

Abdopain.
