    Hi Sophia,

    I too had left sided pain. I was dx w/ left sided ulcerative colitis. I used heat packs and warm topicals like tiger balm or topricin to ease the pain on my left side. I also slept on my right side, with pillows against my back to help ease the tension while I was sleeping. You definitely need to speak to an GI specializing in IBD about treatment options for your colitis.
