Severe upper left abdominal pain

Posted by Mrs_K

My husband is in pain in the upper left abdominal area.  He is mostly healthy and active, but he came home with pain in the same spot a few weeks ago.  It feels better when he lays on that side, stands strait, and/or tightens all the muscles he can in his torso.  When he's in the right position, it doesn't hurt him at all.  I don't know if it's gas, muscle tightness, if he's hurt a rib somehow, or if it's something I need to worry about.  He can't tell me what hurts, just where it hurts and that pressure helps it.  He's in a lot of pain, and I don't know what to do for him.  : (
