Hello! For the past week I've been getting these very sharp pains. It takes place right under my lower left stomach, right by my hip bone. When I wake up, there's really not much pain, but through the day, it gradually gets more painful. It gets to the point as to where I can't walk without feeling like I'm being stabbed. At night, it's gotten so bad, that there's just so much pain, it hurts to turn my body. (you know, when you toss and turn to get comfortable, hehe) I'm five feet and 120 pounds. I am completely healthy (besides being a little vitamin D deficient...oops) and stretch regularly (PE requirements, eck.) Anyways, I'm hoping it's nothing too serious as I've not had a fever, nor has anything been disarray with my bowel movements. Anyways, please help. Smile thank you.

Welcome to e health forum.

Based on the symptoms you have mentioned, you may be having pain due to musculoskeletal causes. A muscle strain of the lower ribs or the abdominal musculature can be the possible cause.

A few days of proper rest, and avoiding sleeping on the affecting side should help.

Medications like advil or motrin can be taken to relieve the pain. Icing the area 3-4 times a day would help too.
