Welcome to ehealthforum

Left upper abdominal pain can be due to various reasons as pancreatitis,spleen injury,kidney abnormality,strained nuscle etc.It is very important to evaluate the nature of pain,severity,duration and associated symptoms
Since the pain is periodic and you are not being relieved of it consider visiting a Physician for detailed examination.A USG scan might be required which would help in the correct diagnosis.

Take Care!
