Diagnosis: What it sounds like is that you are having pain. To determine the cause of the pain requires a thorough examination, medical history, medication review, possibly imaging, possibly lab tests. Only with a complete understanding can the cause of your pain be diagnosed and then treated. Please seek evaluation by your General Physician or Urgent Care (not ER).
