: most of the literature i've seen says that side stitches occur on the right. mine does not. can anyone shed some light on this for me? thanks
Side stitches can occur on either side, but as you say, they are much more common on the right side. Why? Some believe that there is more internal organ weight on the right side.
First, make sure what you are experiencing on your left side really is traditional side stitch. If you are not sure, go to a doctor and get it checked out.
