Hello good evening Rinatashya.
Pain in the left abdomen can be caused by many things, one of which may be related to the activities you have been doing recently, myalgia, or muscle pain. Myalgia can occur due to injury to the muscles in question, in this case the abdominal muscles. Activities that are too strenuous, especially if not preceded by adequate warm-up, can cause muscle spasms in question, so that afterward you will feel pain. When you sneeze, there is a stretching of the abdominal muscle layer and an increase in pressure in the stomach, so it will feel pain in the injured muscle.
In addition to myalgia, left abdominal pain can also be caused by:
Gastritis, or commonly called ulcer. This pain occurs in the upper left abdomen, in the form of a stinging feeling. Triggers can be late eating, stress, caffeine consumption, consumption of sour & spicy foods, and so on.

Symptoms include fever, pain during intercourse or when urinating, nausea, vomiting, and greenish-yellow vaginal discharge. and so on. If your abdominal pain does not improve, it is recommended that you see a doctor to find out the cause of the pain you are feeling, so that you get the right treatment according to the disease causing it. The doctor may perform blood, urine, or ultrasound lab tests if needed.
In the meantime you can try the following things at home while waiting to consult a doctor:
rest physically, avoid massaging the painful area, avoid consuming acidic, spicy foods, caffeinated drinks, avoid holding your pee, always warm up enough before doing physical exercise. Hopefully the explanation can answer your question.
