I'm 25, workout for 5 years. Sleep on old mattress, recently been having lower back pain, hard to bend. My left chest stings from time to time, why?

Nonspecific: Low back pain is very common, and usually related to muscle-spine problems that aren't dangerous. Stinging in the left chest doesn't point to a single diagnosis. Try things like stretching or yoga. Consider changing your mattress. If you're worried, see your primary care provider for a proper evaluation. Hope this helps! ...Read more

Folliculitis: You probably have folliculitis that may resolve with conventional antibiotics. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a bacterium that causes infections in different parts of the body. The symptoms of MRSA depend on where you're infected. Most often, it causes mild infections on the skin, like sores or boils. But it can also cause more serious skin infections. ...Read more

What causes chest pain, sharp, stinging nerve-like pain in upper left chest extending to abdomen? Brief but strong, occurring over last 3 days?

What causes chest pain, sharp, stinging nerve-like pain in upper left chest extending to abdomen? Brief but strong, occurring over last 3 days?

Causes and mechanism: Many potential causes of such symptoms but the same mechanism --
when the chest pain is sharp and fleeting, stinging or electrifying, can be at varying intensities -- it is caused by irritation of the nervous network in the chest wall. The nervous system is rather like the body's own electrical system -- so the sensation is indeed electrifying.
The most common cause is a simple chest wall strain. ...Read more

Recent concussion. Still have headache. Just felt a stinging chest pain on left side. Have felt it before though. Concussion related? Coincidence?

Recent concussion. Still have headache. Just felt a stinging chest pain on left side. Have felt it before though. Concussion related? Coincidence?

Less likely related: They are less likely to be related. You may have a post-concussive/traumatic headache. If the headache is accompanied by other symptoms (difficulty concentrating, irritability) then you might have post-concussion syndrome. If the headache doesn't clear or gets worse, see your physician. Http://www. Brainline. Org/content/2008/12/headaches-after-head-injuries-8212-post-traumatic-headaches. Html ...Read more

I've got the nexplanon in january. I haven't had a period this month. I've been having chest pain. A stinging sometimes dull heaviness on my chest?

Get seen by doctor!: Anytime you have the combination of chest pressure, or heaviness, with/without shortness of breath, you need to see a doctor. With the Nexplanon you are at increased risk for blood clots, this goes up much more if you smoke. See your doctor and get checked out. If you get worse, go to the emergency department. ...Read more

I took a loratidine last night and had a glass of wine tonight. Is that ok? I'm having anxiety and stinging chest pains now. :/

Unlikely connection: Loratadine usually does not last beyond 24 hours. For most people it does not cause any sedation. It is unlikely that your symptoms are related to the drug. ...Read more

I often have stinging chest pains in the middle of my jest (between my boobs) I do have a heart murmur, does it have anything to do with it?

Non-cardiac pain: Murmurs are painless. Most common cause of central anterior chest pain would be a diaphragmatic muscle spasm. Hurts a lot and gradual passes over a minute or so. Other pains are usually dull and cramping. I know of no life threatening similar discomforts. Some problems with swallowing can cause severe cramping pain but the diaphragm is the best bet. There is no preventive measure for that. ...Read more

cardiac is fine, chest pain for two months now. Weight on chest and back, chest cracks, back crack, stinging/dull ache when breathing in deeply/ not?

cardiac is fine, chest pain for two months now. Weight on chest and back, chest cracks, back crack, stinging/dull ache when breathing in deeply/ not?

How do you know?: The doc who declared Cardiac is fine, can lend a helping hand and rule out other causes. A thorough history and physical are the first steps. From what limited information you gave it's very difficult to conclude anything. In the meantime, if you're not allergic and your kidneys are fine I would suggest you take some Aleve (naproxen). ...Read more

Got the flu, it's going away just have mucus build up in throat. When I flex my chest there is a stinging pain in the middle, why?

You may have some: Residual muscle strain from the flu, which does cause many small muscles on your body to be inflamed, or you may have some nerve involvement. Bottom line is that these things happen after influenza and we just hope that it goes away. If you continue to have pain when you cough or breathe deeply, then go see a healthcare provider to make sure it is not a blood clot in the lungs. ...Read more

Had scop down didn't find any think take lansoprazole 30mg aday and still getting burning in chest and very sore stinging throat what can I do?

Scope can be normal: Just because the scope didn't see anything doesn't mean you don't have acid reflux. The only way to confirm acid reflux is with a pH probe. But maybe it would be easier to just try a different medication, or combine medications to reduce acid reflux. If still not effective, then maybe the pH probe is needed to see if acid is really the problem. ...Read more

My daughter was outside playing and said she has a stinging like pain in her chest?

Stinging pain: First look for signs of insect bite or sting. Is the pain constant? Does it radiate to other parts of the body or stay in one place. Is she short of breath? Follow up with a doctor in urgent care if pain is persisting more than an hour, radiating or if she is short of breath. ...Read more

What could cause sharp stinging pain in center of chest after a cough? Only lasts a minute or 2 but reoccurrs after every cough. Non productive cough

Musculoskeletal...: Pain as you describe is likely musculoskeletal pain related to coughing. The chest wall has muscles, cartilage and bone and these structures can be injured when coughing. For example, muscle strain/sprain, cartilage inflammation, rib bruise or even fracture can occur with coughing. When the cough resolves, this will heal so see your doctor for cough treatment. ...Read more

Hi, I've been having a pain everything I breath in. It's kind of like a stinging pain in my lower chest. Should I be concerned? And what should I do?

Chest pain: This is chest pain of unknown etiology - could be as simple as a bruised or injured rib or a muscular injury casued by overexer tion - but it should be checked out by a doctor since pain with ever breath is not normal at all. Only examination can likely tell. Don't wait do it promptly. ...Read more

Lying dwn & felt a cool feeling go across the right side of my chest. Almost felt like fluid passing thru beneath ribs, mild stinging pain persists?

Odd type of pain: Doesn't sound too concerning. Sounds more like nerve type pain? Hard to say from the description. Seems like you have already seen a physician for this? Would recommend establishing care with a primary care physician and having them work it up further. ...Read more

I have chest pain that feels like sting?

With effort?: In children and young adults a fairly good rule of thumb is that if the pain is random, brief (seconds to minutes) not related to effort and made worse by deep breathing or stretching it is probably not the heart but rather "chest wall" pain. In any case, you should see your doctor to make sure you are not overlooking something important. ...Read more

Chest pain on my right side it's sharp n feels like a sting last 4 a couple seconds. Other then that no other pain or recent injury just a sharp sting?

Difficult to answer: Your symptom is difficult to analyse. Sharp stinging pain lasting couple of seconds, does not sound ominous. However if it bothers you, get it checked. ...Read more
