That is one of the signs of appendicitis. I would get it checked out.

Your appendix is on your lower right side. It hurts more when you left go of the pressing in, than the actual pressing in. (Husband appendicitis a few years ago).

Left side pain can be many things. My smart-mouth answer is "so don't press your left side", but you could make an appt and talk to your doctor about it.

I just went through that and I was diagnosed with diverticulitis. Have it checked out, can be serious.
