Pain on left side of body

by Michele

Pain only in left side of body. Left heal, left knee, left elbow. Also neck/back pain that had me immoble for 3 weeks. All of this at the same time. I am only 37 but feel 97. On top of this all I do is cry and I feel so very depressed. It's been difficult on my family. Sometimes I truly can't take another minute. I don't leave the house much anymore because of all of this. I have had to stop exercising too so now I keep gaining weight. The emotions I am feeling too are so intense.

pain trapped air causing pain left part of body
by: Arjun

Hi all,
I am 29 years old male and its been 2 years since I started having pain and a feeling of gas bubbles trapped in left part of body acoompanied by numbness in left foot rather both feet while sitting crossed legs on floor. Also, acute pain in knees is felt
After trying various medications I've found these useful :-
1- Keeping stomach and digestive system healthy.using antacids and laxatives to avoid acidity / constipation.
2- Massaging body with herbal oils daily before bathing
3- Rather than heavy or cardio exercise, performing certain yog-asanas especially Surya namaskar.

Comments and suggestions welcomed..

left side pain for 12 years
by: bluebell

Hi everyone

I'm from Europe so my apologies for my poor English.

I am 30. About 12 years ago I started having back pain. I was diagnosed: a mild hernia. I went to a physical therapist and the pain got less. After a while I suddenly got a lot of pain in my left knee...he examined me but could not find a thing. I went to the hospital, did some scans...nothing.

About a year later my left shoulder started to hurt really bad. The pain went from my shoulder trough my neck, my left jaw, eye and trough my left upper arm. Again I went to many doctors, neurologists, rheumatologists, you name it, took scans, blood tests and so on... but no result.

About a half year later my left foot also started to hurt. Now after 12 years and seeing many doctors (lot of research) I still have pain in my left foot, knee, hip, back, shoulder, arm, jaw...

Also very strange, when I lay in bed: when I lay on my left side my right leg and foot start to tingle, too sleep and nothing is strange.

The doctors can't explain this.

I've spend a lot of money on doctors that could not help me.

It's driving me crazy, I can't sleep at night. Warm baths and pain killers do NOT work. I'm not working and also feel frustrated and depressed at times. I hate living in pain every day. The only doctor I haven't visited so far is a podiatrist...

For now, I don't feel like spending the money (I don't have) on another research, but I will go to the podiatrist, you never know right? But if that doctor can't find a thin I will feel completely hopeless.

I feel like my youth is waisted because of this pain...People so young should not be in this pain and not even knowing where it comes from.

I'm glad I found all your comments here, so I know Im not alone and I hope the best for all of you

I'm experiencing it too
by: Anonymous

I am also experiencing this thus i got to this site. I started feeling this almost 2 years when i started working in field where i work hard day and night (literally) and STRESS in office seems to never end.
I observe that this pain gets worse when i get stressed and when i get exposed to cold weather.
Most of my family and friends said that it is some kind of "air" in my system that needs to get out. and it's true, everytime i;m having a massage i can't stop from burping and farting - you may laugh but it is true - it seems that some air in my systems get out that way. I feel i get a super fresh body after having a massage. But then again the pain comes back for stressed will never get out of my life.
I hope this help.
Avoid stress as much as possible.
Do exercise , even jogging will help.
Invest in coats/jacket that will really make you warm.
And don't forget the massage.
I'm not saying that this is the answer but in my case this helps me a lot so i hope those who are experiencing stress and this pain PLEASE try this, it will not going to hurt you.

Pain always on my left side
by: Jen S

Hi, Iam 34 yrs old female and have been having many issues with the left side of my body. Currently my left eye waters a lot and my left nostril runs more than left, even when I am sick. Now having pain no left side of my chest of my left breast down into my armpits & side. Then I've been getting headaches on only the left side of my head above my left eye. Currently I was on a trip to sea world and on the second day my legs and feet were cramping severely now almost 2 weeks later it's my left leg and foot still cramping along with constant pain in my left knee. Can there medically or neurologically be something wrong with just the left side of my body?

Like someone said you are not alone
by: sonu

Hi there
I think I have a long experience than anybody else.I have been suffering since last 20 years now,the same left side body pain,which makes me paralyse to move forward in my life.its a stabbing pain in neck & shoulder,shooting pain directs to left hand & leg as well,feels numb & weak.The minute pain starts...over the years what i have found that its for me is emotional pain which leads me to physical pain,whenever i get upset,stressed or think something very deeply,the pain rate will increase to 400%.feeling helpless,not be able to do normal household chores & lot life totally distubed. am in my upper 30's & sometimes feels like 60 yrs old.I am very high qualified,but can't start any new job because of this condition....but above all

we are all human,our nature more or less same like others.after i was diagonesed fibromyagia,was taking anti depressant,then i switch to Lyrica,it is helping a lot,but the minute i will come under the loop of stressed or any emotional trauma,no medication is helping at could talk to your doctor.

Recenlty i came accross with a group of people who serves the nation selflessly by teaching the true meaning of life,who we are ? from where we were come from,& tells about positive thinking & the philosophy of KARMA.They said that we all carries something from out past birth through bad karma because of that we are suffering in this life.I am truely a follower of those people now,listen to them,They teach a simple meditation technique,if one will practice that they will be out of any kind of pain.
slowly slowly am trying to follow them,& i have made simple changes in my life style
start positive thinking,not thinking much about my pain,i don't pay attention now a days,sending good energy to my pain?? & tell myself repetedly one day i will be fine,my pain will reduce,i will be able to do what i used to do before like that.its not going to happen overnight.but if one can practice meditation,they will get mental peace & the physical pain will reduce automatic.if anybody wants to learn that kind of meditation,i will write you again.
just be positive & think posive,miracle will happen.
if you think good, good will follow you,if you think evil,then evil will follow please whoever reads this..try to be positive no matter what is the situation,then all problems will be resolved.

Turning Pain into Peace
by: Michele NJ

I have heard that there has been intense energies on the earth right now that have been causing everyone to feel like their life and emotions are upside down. It's funny that i find myself here again after so long since my first post, with a pulled neck muscle that is(you guessed it) on the left side. But even besides this, we are all being forced into situations where change is very necessary to be able to move forward in our lives. I have been trying to use the times I feel much emotion or canceled plans because I don't feel good, to be able to journal and write out my feelings. It's helping a lot to look within for the answers. Quiet the mind and pray and wait. I am figuring out a lot of things and making lists of all the things I need to change in order to be closer to my dreams. And to just feel better each day. A lot of the pain we experience that seems unusual can sometimes have to do with anger and resentment and unforgivness towards yourself or another. We hold on to toxic feelings for so long it manifests itself into pain. There is a shift going on that should ease up the next month. Be strong. It will get better as we start to make inner changes. I will end this now with a quote I came across. Don't know where I got it from.
"The time has come to take the necessary steps to set my dreams in motion". Be well, my friends!

pain here too
by: Zuzu

I first came down with this pain last year around this time. It got progressively worse at one point. At 33 years old I walked with a limp and needed help carrying things because of the weakness in my left arm. Studies should I had 3 bulging discs in my lower back protruding to the left side. After PT it got better. However, the pain is returning and it sounds like fibromyalgia. Im frustrated because no one knows for sure...all I can do is take one day at a time.....

severe pain on left side of body
by: Anonymous

I know what you are going through. I've had severe pain on the left side for 2 yrs. there is a very definite line where the pain stops in the middle of my body. sometimes i feel like my bones are red hot, and it is very worrisome. and its not just bone pain its muscle cramps and spasms.

It started around the time of my hip surgery and previous corticosteroid injection

My theories:

-maybe a disc/back prob
-maybe a deep infection
-maybe MS
-maybe a vascular problem

I'm hoping to be covered by insurance again soon, so I can find out, because the pain is wearing me down physically and emotionally.

From out to in healing
by: meera

I had a fall 5weeks back...tripped over 1cm of stone slab while jogging. It hurt my left arm and a hard hit on right jaw.There was no bruises on my left arm but it had adjustment problems on wrist and elbow. Saw a General doctor for fear of fractures.Nothing.I could not take out my tishirt for a few days.I decided to slowly to do the tasks i can do, slowly i could do more as days went by. As my arm got back it's flexibility i started adding increasing pressure to it.i also do group meditation twice a week.I still ran and swam gingerly. As my arm power improved my left neck also improved. Saw a chiropractor,one week back, to adjust my neck and she refused when she saw my neck Xray...bone spurs from past falls(now i knew my real problem).then one day when the time was right ,during group meditation, felt like creaking my neck and the pressure was relieved. Of course, i did ask god to help me heal myself prior to meditation. nothing forced .

relief of left body pain
by: Meera

I suffered the same as you few years ago. you are taking on other people problem and your body don't know how to throw bad energy out...yours and others. I took up and it changed my life around(it's free). Listen to the teaching of saints and especially good if they are still living . Easy to tune in to the energy. Also as the pain reduced i started excercising again to make the body strong. Plus i try to be happy. Emotions count in healing. Also i stopped unnecessary phone calls...sensitive to voice...they carry good and bad energy and rewires system for pain. mix in a group of people instead of just one.Country hillsides are good mediums for good Energy.And most important, believe in God.

Left Side body pain
by: Lynda from NC

Serveral years ago, I had severe pain beneath my left shoulder blade. I was in agony. The chiropractor I went to worked for over a month to decrease the pain. My first week was 5x/week, slowly moved to 3x/week and then during the last week, 2x/week. After over $1,000 of my own money because of my insurance coverage, the pain was finally under control.

I am a Certified Healing Touch Practitioner and was told that general pain on the left side of my body indicated that I was having issues with a female in my life. Several of my Healing Touch peers kept saying that this was emotional pain vs. physical pain and I could not, for the life of me remember when I had done anything unusually physical to cause this pain. Coincidentally, I had just had a huge argument with my mother over my husband's and my choice to something with some of our money that she thought was wrong!

I am not diagnosing, but it might be worth a trip to your nearest Healing Touch practitioner to investigate this. Hope this helps and hope you are doing better.

Thank you for sharing!
by: Kathy

Thank you all for your sharing! I feel like there is hope and I will begin further exploring the chrystalline process. I have been researching the reasons for the pain on the left side of my body for some time now. Doctors can't figure it out. I, too, have gained too much weight. Doctors have misdiagnosed me as having epilepsy, then MS, and now simply dismiss it all. My cholesterol is now severely elevated and the recommendation is statin meds. I try not to ever take any meds. There is comfort in knowing others are going through this but, I must admit, I look forward to moving beyond this chronic pain and fatigue. Many blessings to each of you on this journey! Namaste~

you're not alone
by: Sharon

Pretty much have had the same symptoms as yours. Also gained 20 lbs despite regular exercise. Except for going to work, I don't go out much often now; been cocooning for about two years already. My doctor prescribed Lexapro/Cipralex. Its and anti-depressant but helps relieve the pain and other symptoms like feeling the heat, etc. and makes me sleep better. It seems to be working for me. Perhaps you should ask your doctor about it. I also try to have reiki healing once a month.

I know how you feel!
by: Elle (Arizona)

About 2 weeks ago, I woke up in the morning with pain and stiff neck only on the left side of my body. It hurt SO MUCH that it felt like whiplash and I couldn't move my neck. But there was absolutely no reason for me to get that since I don't do ANYTHING anymore. It lasted for almost 2 weeks. Like you, I stay home all the time, and have gained 20 pounds that will not budge no matter what I do (and I've tried EVERYTHING!). I went from a size 5 to a size 11. It has been explained to me that the weight gain is important for the cellular changes and that we need the fat to coat the cells for the crystalline process (or something to that effect...)

I know it's hard to deal with heightened sensitivity, not wanting to be in crowds anymore, weight gain, no energy to do anything etc...Especially at a young age that most of your friends are inviting you places that you no longer have interest to go to. There are a lot of us going through this, you are not alone. I know it's easier said than done, but just ride it out. It will pass. Once the body releases what it needs to, you will feel better. Get as much rest as you can and don't feel guilty about it. Cry when you have to and release it, let it go. The weight will come off when you adjust to the new energies. And don't be afraid to let go of your past routine. If it doesn't fit anymore, don't beat yourself up for it. Just move on to something else that fits better.

I understand what you're going through! I'm right there with you. And I hope it passes SOON. I feel like I don't have a life anymore...Sending you a big hug :0)
