Strange feeling
I am not sure if this feeling is 'inside' or 'on top' - I keep on feeling a little twinge on my left side - above hip bone (about a 50c piece in diameter). What organ is situated here and if it was an organ would I feel it almost on the skin/in the fat layers?

Dear Colleen
this could be a superficial nerve that you injured or it could be a referred pain from the pelvis. If you still feel it when you make your tummy muscles tight, it probably is superficial.
