What does abdominal discomfort on the left side of body suggest?
Abdominal pain that lasts for more than 6 hours needs investigation
left side discomfort is usually attributed to the intestine or the ovaries, although other cause are also possible like the kidney or her vasculature. The appendix typically hurts in the right lower side. Despite that any pain that lasts for many hours needs investigation.
A careful clinical examination is enough most of the times to exclude serious causes but laboratory investigation might be needed depending on the doctor's findings.
