have pain in lower left side of abdomen. right above the waist line. it is occurring on a female. not sure if it is spleen or pancreas but it is swolen in that area as well. just started a little bit ago.
Pain left side started suddenly may be due to a muscle sprain,gastritis,any chest condition like cough,infection in lungs,heart conditions and then splenic or pancreas issues...in that order..YOU WILL NEED TO BE EXAMINED TO CONSIDER POSSIBLITY OF ANY OF THESE BUT IF ITS SHORT DURATION IT LIKELY TO BE MUSCLE SPRAIN..wait for a day and if its unbeareable seek action immediately...
