I have been having pain in the upper left hand side of my stomach and was wondering what this could be caused from. I have a herniated disc in my lower right back that causes chronic pain and was wondering if they are possibly related. Symptoms started about 3 days ago and continue to persist. I have noticed that certain foods make it worse but no matter what I eat or drink it doesn't completely go away.

Turns out this was caused from the Naproxen I was taking for my herniated disc... the Naproxen burned a hole in my stomach - nasty drug stay away from it.
First, see a doctor.
Second, for a year I saw three urologists, a nephrologist, went to Emory, and went to mayo clinic because everyone was sure my right flank pain was my kidney.
To make a LONG PAINFUL story short, I had a ruptured thoracic disc and it was referred pain.
Still, you need a doctor to get the confirmation tests run. Tell them your suspicions and maybe they will do an MRI to include you thoracic spine.
