Hi,
According to your symptoms its difficult to find out exact problem. In such situation there are 2 common possibilities. first is that you must be suffering from acute gastritis if you are on any pain medications. Second thing is there might be some internal injury on left side which has gone unnoticed. For this you may have to undergo some other tests like xray and ultra sound abdomen. So pl. consult to your physician for the proper diagnosis. Do not neglect the pain .
Take care and get well soon
