    Left sided symptoms are baffling. All I know is that when you read forums relating to other autoimmune or viral infections those people seem to have predominantly left side issues as well, men included. So my theory is that when hormones start going wacky, it causes our immune systems to lower thus leaving us vulnerable to things our immune systems were keeping in check. People also get these things when under great stress, not sleeping well, anything that will weaken the immune system

    YES! This!! 

    Seven/eight years ago (I was 32) my left side went completely numb. No feeling, minimal movement...my husband brought me to the ER, we and the doctor believed I had a stroke. MRI, CT scans and nothing. Now I have burning pain on the left side of my chest, going into arm and neck, with shortness of breath, again only on the left side. And of course CT shows nothing...why, why, why is it only on the left side? What an excellent question!!!!!! Thank you 😊 since I've joined this forum I do not feel so alone and adrift.

    I would love to know this too! My symptoms are mostly the left shoulder, neck, area right under left rib, left groin area, and my left thigh.

      I think there is a main nerve that runs on that side and can set off different sensations.  It’s weird that heart attacks trigger left arm pain, sciatic nerve pain is left sided too...
