For no reason in the middle of sex my girlfriend complained about some pain at around her left lower rib and how it was hurting really bad, we stopped and she said that her hands went numb and that she is now feeling hot? what could it be. she said her spleen has been enlarged before.

Hi, Welcome to Health care magic forum.
It appears to be the spleen infection, or enlargement due to some other reason.
The symptoms could be due to the fever of the infection.
I advise her to consult a physician for diagnosis and treatment. She may need to have the U.S.scanning of the abdomen for diagnosis .
Ask her to take more of green leafy vegetables, pulses, sprouts,and protein rich foods to prevent such infections.
Wishing for a quick and complete recovery. Thank you.

Hello
There is the possibility of a strained intercostal or abdominal muscle during the thrusting activity. It should go away after sometime by itself. I don't think it has something to do with enlarged spleen. but if these symptoms persist for long after you have stopped sex, then some investigations are needed.
Good Luck
