    I have the exact pain, lower left side between the rib cage & the hib. I cannot sleep on my left side and have continous pain between 3 to 5 out of 10. I have had a CT scan, enoscopy & colonscopy which all came out normal. I did have a robotic hysterectomy in January 2014 (to rule out cancer, a breast cancer survivor). I am 61 years of age and have found that Midol seems to help. I am having sever menstral cramping without the organs and the Midol helps. Went to the doctor today and he told me to continue with my prescription and Midol. He wants to ween me off of both and new appointment in December 2014. The best of luck to you and a heating pad does help.
