Hello everyone! I have this very sharpe pain on my left side around my mid-section. I have no idea what it's hurting! I have this cold which me and my almost 9 month son has had for about 2 weeks now. He is going to the doctors on Monday I'm going to try and get one on Monday also. Yesterday I woke up and I was in pain. I don't know if it could be that I need to drink alot of water because maybe it's a kidney infection or if there is something else wrong. It hurts when I hold my son and when I move from side to side. At this point I wish I had some very good pain pills because the tyenol isn't helping at all! So any ideas what it could be or anything that I can do to get rid of the pain?? Thank you!! Happy mylotting!!

Well it could be that if you have a cold and are coughing hard you pulled something. My advice to you though is if it is a really intense pain to go to emergency. It could be appendicitis or something like that. Better to be safe than sorry.

Thanks! But I know for a fact it isn't my appendix...I don't have any anymore. I was born with 3 intestine and 2 appendix! From what the doctors have said I was suppose to be a twin but it just didn't work. When I was 9 years old I had an emergency surgury and they took out my extra intestine that was just there and not working and then both of my appendix. I had before 9 years old always had stomach problems and then one morning I woke up and was in pain and kept throwing up and also I got these weird bumps on my bottom so my mother rush me to the hospital. The doctors had no idea what was wrong so they just open me up and found all the extra parts! I know gross huh!? So I know it's not that....I'm thinking it's from being dehydrated since I have a cold and I need to drink lots of water and get maybe some cranberry juice. Or maybe I pushed a muscle there which I don't know how since I just started coughing alittle today. But I do have an infant so maybe from picking him up. Who knows! Thank you so much for responding and I hope I didn't just make you sick! I will call the doctors Monday if I am still having this problem but if it does get worst I'll go into the ER. Until Monday I'm going to drink a bunch of water and get some cranberry juice and see if that helps. Happy mylotting!!

hi there, Only a medical practitioner would be able to tell you what is wrong. If you are suffering and in a lot of pain, I wouldn't wait until Monday to seek medical attention. I would go to the ER immediately in case there is something seriously wrong. I do hope everything is alright ~proudnana~

You probably should get som anti-biotics. Maybe it could be your spleen enlarged if you have some kind of infections going on. Hope you feel better soon. Drink a lot of fluids and get some anti-biotics in your system.

Thank you! I didn't even think about my spleen! If it's still hurting on Monday I'm going to call and get an appt for that day hopefully. Today is saturday and my doctors office is closed. Too bad you can't just pick up medicine without a prescription...or just have it to where you call your doctor and tell them what's wrong and they can just call in a prescription if that's what is going on and you need it. Wishful thinking huh?! lol Thank you so much for responding!! Happy mylotting!!
