Thoracic spine: Since you already suffer from lower back pain, it is possible that you also have thoracic spine pathology, which is causing you to have chest wall pain. See a neurologist. ...Read more

102 fever back pain gets worse when take deep breath head hurts tested positive on d dimer blood test nothing showed on CT with contrast what's wrong ?

See a doctor: The d dimer increases in pulmonary embolism. But it also increases for many other conditions. The CT should have seen anything else going on . Perhaps not pleurisy . The fever is of concern . Best see your doctor for a complete check up to determine the cause of your symptoms ...Read more

Chest pain: On the left side is serious until you can explain that it isn't your heart. Diaphram sounds involved. Any chance you just upset your stomach with the ibuprofen? Must rule out heart/aorta/abdomin issues then go from there. ...Read more

New back pain that woke me up last.  It feels like it may be my ribs in the back on the right.  It hurts to take a deep breath not sure what it is.

Need further eval: It could be simply musculoskeletal such as a rib fracture or pulled muscle. However, your shortness of breath is concerning. You may have a blood clot in your lungs which could cause these symptoms. Your symptoms might be something going on with your lungs or heart so see a healthcare provider as soon as possible or further workup. ...Read more

Ive had severe lower back pain for 5 days. the pain has begun to wrap around to my abdominal area and it hurts to take a deep breath.  Feel bloated.

Doctor can check: Back pain on either side of the spine (called flank pain by doctors) can be caused by kidney disease or other abdominal disorders, especially if the person doesn't remember hurting her back by lifting or working too much. Other abdominal problems (occasionally serious ones such as a tumor) can also show up as back pain, so evaluation by a doctor is needed. ...Read more
