I have an achy sore upper right pain, pain in upper back occas.- is this gallstones? Don't have increased pain after eating. 31 yrs old scared cancer

Doubt cancer: Cancer usually doesn't cause pain. Even though the pain does not come after eating, it could be your gallbladder. See your primary care provider, and ask if its appropriate to get an ultrasound of the gallbladder. Even without stones, there's something called biliary dyskinesia that could be the problem. Hope this helps! Read more

What are the causes of sleep problems and body aches?

What are the causes of sleep problems and body aches?

Many factors: Body aches, by themselves, can cause sleep problems. Poor sleep is usually due to being aroused from sleep and this is often due to pain from some area of the body. An over the counter pain medication such as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) taken one hour before retiring can help alleviate aches while sleeping. A 'sleep study' can provide more data-see your doctor for more info. Read more

There are 3 strains of influenza-so, you could theroretically get influenza 2 more times this season. Ugh! Read more
