When I fish, wash the dishes, hold my son, or anything with my left side it hurts. Typically the pain subsides when I am able to sit down, relax my left arm, or lift
my head. This does not always work, though. I have taken some over the counter pain meds, but they do not seem to make a single bit of difference. It hurts so bad sometimes. Sometimes it feels like the area is tingling, like when your leg or arm falls asleep.
