389732 tn?1212519993 I've been having chest pain on my left side sort of right under the rib and I'm not sure what is it? I've had it for almost two years now. I never went to look it up because I thought maybe it's just something minor, but it keeps happening. When I lay on my side or being in a particular posture then it'll hurt and the pain is really sharp.

799959 tn?1239293294 When women were added to the cardiac research it was discovered that they do usually present with the same symptoms that men do when experiencing heart pain. Some never have chest pain, or only have right sided pain, or back pain or a bit of chest pressure but great fatigue. All sudden onset chest pain (either side) should be treated as serious until it is proven otherwise. How is your Mom doing?
Avatar n tn Hi there, I can hear and understand that you are very frustrated and the "not knowing what is wrong" part can make one feel depressed and anxious at times. Typical heart pains, funny enough, will not be at the left side of your chest. It sounds like you have a nerve that is stuck somewhere and have you ever considered seing a Neurologist for an MRI? I am talking out of experience...
Avatar m tn 10-11 hrs a night, I sometimes wake up with left side chest pain. I had my cholesterol checked and it came back Total-245, Triglycyrides-253, HDL-39, and LDL-156. How bad is this and is that enough to cause my chest pain and am I at risk for a heart attack?? If I'm more active could I get this lowered? and does the beer I drink affect cholesterol levels? Thanks so much.
Avatar m tn My husband is 32 years old in great shape and has been having chest pain, upper left back pain, lower abdominal and side pain, and shooting pain down his left arm with some numbness. He has been dealing with these symptoms for a while now and keeps going to the doctor and running all these tests and nothing. Yesterday, while he was at work he had to leave and go to the e.r. and of course nothing, they told him to go to his doctor. which is what we have been doing.
Avatar n tn On Nov 29 I wrote to you about my youngest son (16) who was complaining of chest pain and subsequently of weakness in the left side of his body. I called his pediatrician and she had me take him to the emergency room to have him checked out. After running several tests, including blood test and a Head CT w/contrast. Every test result was normal, but his white blood cells where a little low which the hospital thought might be caused by a slight viral infection.
Avatar f tn Hi, first of all it's so nice to know I am not crazy. Three years ago, while pregnant with my daughter I started to feel pain under my left rib cage. The docker thought it was her feet brushing against my ribs. Three years later, I am still in pain. Now the pain won't go away. I have had every test under the sun done. Endoscopy, colonoscopy, upper gi, stress test, heart ultra sound, EKG, five other types of ultrasounds ranging from uterus to spleen to gallbladder.
Avatar f tn It feels worse and different than the last chest pain I had. This one is like in my back and all over the left side of my chest. I know that all the tests came back fine but now I'm just not convinced. I can literally feel my arteries being blocked which is what could be causing the pain.
Avatar m tn If feels like the feeling you feel if someone was to jump out from behind something and scare the **** out of you, or the feeling when a cop turns his lights on you to pull you over, or such feeling like that, hard forceful heartbeat, not fast, kinda like shocked into a slow hard heartbeat, fluttering feeling in chest, mild left side chest pain, and short of breath. What could cause this in the middle of the night and wake me from a sleep? Could it be potentially dangerous?

Avatar m tn Your age, the relationship to physical exercise, etc. suggest a thoracic outlet or scalene syndrome. Have MD examine neck muscles and ulnar nerve function in hands. Reduce, if possible, exercises and heat to front of neck over collar bone,, Appropriate pain pillls and muscle relaxers will help also. You are too young to be in USMC- What about school?
Avatar n tn I started to see a new doctor to see if she can figure out my side problem....which i've had for over 13years. Not one doctor can diagnose it. She had all my medical records of all the tests i've had done. I told her I don't want to go down the kidney route b/c it's not my kidney every test i've had done for my kidney comes back normal and fine. Even though it started out as a kidney infection it's not that anymore.
Avatar f tn I just had a complete vaginal hysterectomy 5 wks ago. Currently I'm using the vivelle dot which is the patch. I have been experiencing pain on the left side of my chest. I don't think it's associated with my heart. It also bothers my left arm and shoulder. Could it be from the patch? Another question. For the past week, I've only had green stools. They are sort of gritty looking in texture. Some are hard and some are just normal. No loose bowels though.
Avatar n tn I also wanted to ask can acidity cause such dull and sharp pains? the pain sometimes raidiates to the back and side of my left chest. And this usually happens at night after dinner.

Avatar m tn s disease, in which scar tissue forms and causes the curvature. This is more common in Caucasian men (and more common among men with an A positive blood type.) If the bending of your penis causes concern, consult with your doctor. You can also try regularly applying a reputable penis health cream (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil) every day.
