Pressure On Lower Left Abdomen

For the past two weeks I've had this strange feeling on the left side of my abdomen close to my ribcage. It feels like theres a lot of pressure that wont move. The pressure is making my side bulge. And I'm getting pretty worried. I've gone and had blood test done and everything came back healthy.I did drink energy drinks and coffee a lot on an empty stomach which makes me think that was the cause of this problem. I've been drinking nothing but water for the past two weeks and its gotten a little better but still bulging. I changed my diet and thought it might be IBS but I'm pretty regular. If it was an ulcer or something serious wouldnt it be painful? It's just an annoyance since it makes me uncomfortable when im moving around. Like something inside my abdomen is going to pop. Another strange symptom that is most likely related since it started around the same time is tingling and numbness in my legs.
