Brief Answer:
Please get her clinically evaluated by a physician

Detailed Answer:
Hello

I can understand your concern.
Pain in lower left side of abdomen can be due to muscle pull, blunt trauma to inner abdomen or less commonly due to bony injury.
The most likely cause here is muscle pull(sprain) as bony injury causes restriction of limb movement and blunt trauma to inner abdomen is mostly associated with vomiting and or constipation.
Giving analgesic with muscle relaxant and hot foment action helps in relieving muscle spasm but first get her clinically evaluated by a physician to rule out any significant problem.

I hope this helps
Wishing for your child's good health.
Please let me know if you have any more queries.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for follow up

Internal injury to abdomen is usually associated with fullness of abdomen, greenish vomiting, difficulty in passing stool and is usually constant in nature. While sprain or muscle spasm is more with change in posture.
Observe her and if pain is severe, she is getting pale, very irritable/anxious or if the palms/soles are getting cold (signs of internal bleed) get her to the emergency room.

Dear there, I have got Bell s Palsy last September, I have been improving. Unfortunately this month I have been facing an awkward symptoms in my left side of the face. I have pain behind my left ear (I think it is the 7th nerve). In the same time, when I close or blink my left eye, the muscle around my lips is contracted. Also, when I move my nose muscle, my eye lid also contracted. So. I went to see a neurologist, he told me that I have got Clonic Hemifacial Spasm !! he gave a medical prescription : 1- baclofen (5 mg) once daily. 2- physical therapy (Electrical muscle stimulation (EMS) I have been searching about this condition. I can t believe that I have got Clonic Hemifacial Spasm because I have been watching a medical video about patients with the same condition and it seems different from the condition that I have got.. I went to another neurologist. He told me that I have got Synkinesis !! So, am I having Clonic Hemifacial Spasm or Synkinesis ? and what should I do ? thank you for your help. I really appreciate it.

I had bladder surgery on Tuesday. I am a 44 year old female weighing 250 pounds, am confined to a wheelchair and my ms has been spiralling downward throughout the summer. After surgery, when the anesthesiologist removed the breathing tube, I began having severe chest spasms and breathing problems. He said that if he could not get them under control, they would have to keep me in the hospital. They were able to give me muscle relaxers and valium by IV which worked, after giving me pills which did not work. Early this afternoon, I began wheezing, and it has gradually gotten worse. What could be going on?
