    HI Jessica, Only a doctor has the skills to properly diagnose you. Stomach pain can be caused by a wide variety of problems, some of them minor and some of them major. Pain itself is not a good guide to severity as high pain can sometimes be associated with relatively minor problems and vice versa. Any pain that lasts more than a couple of days, or is very severe or is associated with fever or flu-like symptoms should be investigated by a doctor. This could be from something as simple as gas or constipation or it could be from diverticulitis, edometriosis or kidney stones or something else. This webpage - http://www.abdopain.com/left-side-abdominal-pain.html - has a nice list of abdominal issues that could apply. If the pain continues be sure to see your doctor. Good luck.
