Muscle cramp causes: Muscle cramps can be caused by many things - overuse/increased activity, muscle strain, being low on fluids, being low on electrolytes like potassium, calcium or magnesium. It is common for cramps to happen at night and those muscles to be sore the next day. If things like resting those muscles, heat, stretching or drinking more fluids don't help an examination can evaluate for local problems ...Read more

I have cubical tunnel syndrome.  I had a cramp from my little finger upto my armpit.  Is that  normal to  get cramps or a pain like that?

Pain, numbness, tingling, and weakness in the areas of the 4th and 5th fingers of the hand as well as other hand functions and sensations are compromised to varying degrees depending upon severity of the entrapment and whether or not it's acute vs. Chronic. ...Read more

Take a test : Home pregnancy tests are very accurate. They are the same tests used in a doctors office. They can detect a pregnancy 7-10 days after conception. The best time to take one is when you miss your period. If you doubt the result you can repeat it in 1-2 days. If you were pregnant the hormone level would rise enough for detection. ...Read more

Hormone imbalance: It sounds as if you likely have a hormone imbalance. Estrogen and Progesterone have to work in the correct ratio to each other in order to have a normal cycle. If you have a sore breast near your armpit, i recommend you see a doctor for an exam and history, in this way he/she can examine the breast and help you to understand why you may be missing your cycle. Best luck, . ...Read more

Cramps, constipation, always really tired, itchy nipples and boobs are sore on the sides by armpits, 2 days late. pregnant?

Hard to tell: A urine pregnancy test, done correctly, gives a reliable result 3 weeks after sex (3 weeks after when conception might have occurred), or 1 week after missing a period. If done sooner, a positive result is likely real, but a negative result may be due to testing too soon, and thus lead to a repeat test. If a woman gets her normal regular period, then she is not pregnant, and a test is not needed. ...Read more

I had last menstrual cycle on february 20, 2014. I am having breast tenderness near armpits and cramps on left side. 4 negative pregnancy tests?

Exam: I think this warrants a physical exam by a physician, either a gynecologist, family medicine doctor or internist. You want to make sure that there are no lumps, swollen lymph nodes or other reasons that could be serious for this breast pain. It's likely due to hormones, but always always check things out when it comes to breast pain. Could be related to cramping, but could also be independent. ...Read more
