Smoking dries out the tissues and can accelerate arthritis. Smoking slows healing from muscle strains and tears too. See a neurosurgeon to evaluate the pain and see your medical doctor to work on a program to quit smoking. ...Read more

Wondering what could be causing the discomfort I'm having on my left side of my chest, Hurts when I slouch, and bend my neck down really far..

Sounds muscular: I'm sorry you are having pain. Given that you experience the pain when you bend forward or slouch, that suggests the pain has something to do with your muscles and bones, rather than your internal organs. Did you engage in any unusual physical activity recently? For a proper assessment you will need to consult a clinician for a full evaluation. Best wishes. ...Read more

Chest pain?: If you have chest pain on deep breath, it suggests pleurisy - inflammation of the outside lining of your lung (the "pleura") but that wouldn't explain neck pain. If the pain if primarily confined to your neck, an overstretched or injured muscle is more likely. A neck injury with nerve root traction could cause pain in both areas - at 17, you're too young for arthritis. ...Read more
