Sharp shooting quick pain in chest, like quick needle prick, onsets for a day or two then subsides, comes back again. Clean diet, no drugs. Pls help.

Need more info: Would help to know what triggers the pain, what makes it better or worse once it starts (like breathing, coughing, movement or pressing on it), how long it lasts and any other associated symptoms (like shortness of breath or dizziness). Your description sounds most suspicious for musculoskeletal chest wall pain, but it could involve lungs or even (unlikely) the heart. Best check with your doctor.

Enlarged pore: What you are describing sounds like an enlarged pore. Pores are a normal part of the skin, but if they become blocked or partially blocked, they can become enlarged. If it is not red, tender, or swollen, leave it alone, just be sure to wash your face well daily. If it becomes tender, you may try applying warm compresses.

Hiv from a needle-prick?

Hiv from a needle-prick?

Possible, depends...: It is possible to get hiv-infected from a needle prick (used by hiv+ person). However, depends on the needle bore size. If it is a thicker needle, you are at higher risk as there is more blood present in the needle than a thinner needle. It also depends on how soon after the blood was drawn that the needle prick occurred. If the blood is entirely dry on the needle, the risk is extremely low.

I had sewing needle prick with a little blood. After 24 hours, can I catch any disease if I touch blood at the gas station. Thank you?

Not recommended: I would not recommend touching blood at a gas station, no matter when you contact it. Any areas of broken skin would be especially vulnerable.

Sewing needle prick wound with little blood after 24 hours, is there risky not cover the wound to touch things?

Tetanus shot: I hope that you are up to date on tetanus immunization. While the risk is remote, it is not a bad idea to get a booster shot of tetanus if your last dose was more then 10 years ago. Otherwise a needle prick would seal itself in a day or so.

Needle prick pain in stomach left n right comes n goes in seconds.

Needle prick pain in stomach left n right comes n goes in seconds.

Doubt anything serio: Sort lived sharp pains can occur in almost all of us and it is hard to pin point a cause. They usually go away if you ignore them. But any pain which is lasting more than 5-10 minutess and or it is progressively getting worse, requires a check up from a doctor. Without a physical examination, it is hard to tell you what it is. Most likely it is nothing serious. So try ignoring it for a week or two

I had needle prick injury 5yrs ago by a needle used for skin testing. Is my chance of having HIV very high? Don't know if pt is HIV positive.

Very low: A prick from a high-titer HIV positive patient from a needle with hot, wet, fresh blood is one in 300. Everything else is way less. It's been five years. Why not get your "i'm a young man" HIV test and be done with it?

Risk is almost zero: An event occurring 5 years ago and no other symptoms since makes your risk of HIV virtually zero.

Hi, my chest pain symptoms are: needle prick like stabs, heaviness in chest, hard to breathe, hurts to breathe or move. Tests are normal. Any ideas?

Chest pains: Regardless, could be only muscle pain. However, pain in your chest is a serious medical condition. It is always a red flag and appointment with your PCP for re-evaluation or a cardiologist is warranted. Take care.

Experience a painful lump on inner left buttocks, like needle prick. It's close to the coccyx/crease. Taking nitrofurantoin for UTI. Help?

See a doctor: In order to have this diagnosed appropriately you will have to be seen and examined. It is not likely that this is related to your UTI or to nitrofurantoin, but it sounds serious enough to warrant your being seen ASAP. Hope this is easy to manage & wish you better soon.

Can you get HIV with sewing needle prick open wound 24 hours old that contacts to gas pump which has blood on it?

Can you get HIV with sewing needle prick open wound 24 hours old that contacts to gas pump which has blood on it?

Please get help: A sewing needle prick is sealed by platelets within seconds and fibrin within a few minutes. Blood isn't going to get through. Hiv is a wimpy virus and won't survive on a gas pump. Zebra, you deserve better from life than to continue to suffer from these obsessive, fantastical, utterly-unrealistic fears. Please get with your physician and ask about mental health care. It will help. Best wishes.

I am a heart attack and stroke victim of 2 years. I am getting needle prick sensations in my left foot. It seems to happen only at night. What is it?

I am a heart attack and stroke victim of 2 years. I am getting needle prick sensations in my left foot. It seems to happen only at night. What is it?

Neuritis: Has nothing to do with your heart attack and probably not your stroke either. This is a typical symptom (called paresthesia) of peripheral neuritis. There are many causes. The most common is diabetes but the list includes at least 50. Treatment depends on the cause.
