Should I go to ER? I have had back pain, chest pain, and slight shortness of breath for well over a week now. In the past couple of days, my upper left abdomen has swollen, is extremely painful, and very tender to the touch. My left side and my back also

Hello.

Hello. I can't diagnose your condition. However you describe severe pain in the left upper quadrant of your abdomen with swelling and tenderness to palpation. You also have nausea as well as shortness of breath with pain extending into the chest and back. I think that this constellation of symptoms would warrant an evaluation at an Emergency Room. Take care. I hope you are feeling better soon.

Can fatty cysts be painful? Mine is tennis ball size by left scapula; have constant left back pain & occasional left chest pain.

Yes

Chest_pain
I am assuming you are talking about a lipoma which is a benign fatty tumor. Regardless any mass the size of a tennis ball should be looked into. To answer your question yes it could cause pain. It can be putting pressure on a nerve or structure which could hurt. If its a lipoma then outpatient procedure.

My heart rate (not resting) is 77. I am 19 and a female. I have a squeezing left chest pain, painful shoulders, and nausea. What should I do?

It's likely not a

Heart_rate
Hrt attack, try Mylanta. It's probably esophageal reflux (heartburn) or possibly anxiety (maybe both). Are u sleeping well at night? Do u clinch your teeth? Significant chest pain is very low probability for a cardiac problem or death at ur age. It would be irresponsible of me to tell u to not go in though. it may B something more significant.

What reason could be for ALT 60; ABS eosinophils 680; CO2 31test results, symptoms - chest pain, chronic dry cough, left knee swollen & painful?

No easy answer

Eosinophil
You're on methotrexate and this itself may account for your elevated liver enzymes. The trivial elevation of your eosinophils isn't going to be helpful. If you're on this medication, it's likely to be for joint disease known best to you and your physician. Please forgive me, but your having to ask HealthTap tells me you need to ask for better communication from your treating physician.

Dr. Alan Feldman answered:

Weight loss, night sweats, chest pain, right side neck ache /painful to the touch. Right side thyroid swelling, but my blood tests come back healthy?

Possibly thyroiditis

Antithyroid_medication
Some of your symptoms sound consistent with subacute thyroiditis. This is inflammation of the thyroid, typically related to a virus infection. Thyroid levels may or may not be normal. You should see an endocrinologist for further evaluation.
