Smoker?: Do you smoke? If your your pain occurs with exertion and you smoke, you need a stress test. If no to both, the pain is almost surely not your heart. If the pain goes down your arm, nerve impingement in the neck (disc herniation for instance) is a likely bet. Also muscular strain and fibromyalgia can cause this. ...Read more

My 29 month old daughter has been complaining of back pain, leg and arm pain she has an undiagnosed bleeding/blood disorder could the pain be related?

My 29 month old daughter has been complaining of back pain, leg and arm pain she has an undiagnosed bleeding/blood disorder could the pain be related?

Depends on which: bleeding disorder she has. I assume a pediatric hematologist is evaluating her. Whether related to her blood disorder or not, she's in pain & needs to see her pediatrician. Kids that age don't complain about aches & pains for no reason. Take her temperature when she complains. 100.4 degrees F or above is a fever. Note any joint swelling, tenderness, heat, limp,decreased appetite or activity level. ...Read more

Whats the likelyhood of dying from a blood clot if last weeks CT of chest was clear but I still have chest and arm pain(arm wasn't checked)?

Whats the likelyhood of dying from a blood clot if last weeks CT of chest was clear but I still have chest and arm pain(arm wasn't checked)?

See below: A chest CT is a very good test to show a PE. If no PE was seen, then you either didn't have one or it was extremely small and peripheral, thus nothing to worry about. That doesn't mean one couldn't develop. But as of now, I wouldn't worry about clots. ...Read more

I am experiencing cough (quality: blood in phlegm, with phelgm or mucus) and arm pain. The following also describes me: Chest congestion. Green and yellow phlegm with blood.. Was prescribed zpak. But afraid to take. Is there a substitute?

I am experiencing  cough (quality: blood in phlegm, with phelgm or mucus)  and arm pain. The following also describes me: Chest congestion. Green and yellow phlegm with blood..  Was prescribed zpak. But afraid to take. Is there a substitute?

Take as prescribed: This sounds like a potentially serious infection, maybe even pneumonia. "Afraid to take" azithromycin (Zpak) is not rational; it is a very safe antibiotic with few side effects. Not treating your infection is MUCH riskier than any potential problem from the antibiotic. Take it as prescribed; if you remain concerned, discuss with the doctor who prescribed it. ...Read more
