Hi,
Welcome to XXXXXXX forum.

Let me know the exact site of pain (whether left side or right side).
There may be possibility of abdominal muscle hematoma probably due to localized injury.
Hematoma in abdominal muscles are painful in touch as it is confined to muscle sheath.
Presence of localized pain along with tenderness suggests the diagnosis.
You should consult with XXXXXXX medicine specialist/ general physician and should go for thorough check up.
You should also go for ultrasound imaging to localize the depth of bruise and injury.
Hematoma gets resolved with time and as such there is no need of any medication.
You should take bed rest.
Hope that helps.
Let me know if I can address any more concerns.
Take care,
Dr. Mayank Bhargava

Hi,
There is possibility of hematoma formation in muscle sheath on left side of abdomen.
You should go for ultrasound imaging for evaluation of affected site.
