Avatar n tn Pain from gallstones usually is in the upper right side of abdomen; and may spread to right upper back, chest, or right shoulder. You might also experience nausea; vomiting; or gas. Regardless, if you're having back, hip and thigh pain, you should see a Doctor to find out what's going on.
Avatar n tn I get a pain in my upper back that spreads around to my chest. Sometimes it lasts about 15 minutes, sometimes 30 minutes. It feels as if I have been stabbed in the back and it comes through my chest. It feels like it comes full circle around my upper body. I have a hard time talking, turn white, clamming and sometimes nauseous. I had every heart test about 3 years ago, but now they are becoming more frequent. What do you think is causing this pain?

Avatar n tn ve had various symptoms, including upper back, rib cage area pain, often like spasms, that stops me in my tracks, and I have had to stop many of my daily activities. I've had a lot of tests and no diagnosis. I was recently found to be low in Vitamin D, which my internist says can cause muscle discomfort, although my neurologist disagrees. It may be worth a try for you.

Avatar n tn I have a lingering pain (about 3 weeks now) in my back. It's on the right side, just below my rib cage and even around on the right side of my rib cage. It really only bothers me when i take a deep breath. I am having an ultrasound and chest x ray Monday. Might this be pleurisy? Also, I have a very bloated feeling in my upper abdomen and even kind of up under my right ribcage.

Avatar f tn I have been experiencing spells of chest and upper back pain for months now. The spells are increasing to several a day. It is a pain and almost a burning sensation in my chest when it happens, accompanied by severe upper back and left shoulder pain. Does anyone have any advice?
Avatar m tn I have been bothered by a sharp pain, lasts very few seconds, in my upper right chest above my right breast. Feels like its under my breastbone..... It does not feel as if it is my breast itself. Rather it feels like it is in my chest - possibly my lung? I feel it when I breathe. I am not sure what to do, if anything. It's not very severe though it is a somewhat uncomfortable feeling.
