    make sure the reed isnt chipped there, and the the mouthpiece is in good shape as well. after than, make sure you play with a good embrochure, and you arent loose on the sides

      Any other weakness on your left side? If so, get to a doctor--NOW. It could be a slight stroke (at any age). Usually, if I play for a very long time, I get such leaks when I am tired. Also, make sure your reed is on straight. That is often the problem.
