Felt Sharp Pain
Strain/sprain.: Sounds like you pulled a muscle. Ice on for 30 minutes, off for an hour, & repeat until 8 hours after injury, and then as needed for comfort. I think ibuprofen should be avoided for 72 hours, to minimize bleeding at injury site. Tylenol (acetaminophen) for pain relief for 1st 72 hours, rest. If the pain is severe or constant, could be rib fracture, so see doc, in that case. If not follow-up 7 days. Did you win? ...Read more

Ice and anti inflammatories can helpful for symptoms. ...Read more

I fell @ 3 weeks ago. 1st week no pain, then I felt sharp pain behind my ankle. Now it's 3 weeks & I feel no pain. Tear or strained tendon?
Likely not a tear:
Most likely not a tear or strain in your tendon. A torn tendon or ligament is usually painful from the time of injury, to the time it heals (usually a few weeks). The pain you felt may have been a mild inflammation in your achilles tendon, which resolved on its own. If the pain comes back and continues, you should probably go see your primary care provider.

Probably soft tissue: Assuming you have previously been healthy the source of pain is probably soft tissue irritation (ligament or muscle) causing muscle spasm in the neck.

Antihistamines, etc.: For bug bites, one can take over-the-counter claritin, zyrtec, or Benadryl (diphenhydramine) to block histamine, which causes itching. Putting Hydrocortisone 1% cream 2-3 times a day on the bites for about 5 days will help them go away. For more itch relief, one can add an anti-itch gel such as "itch-x" on the bites. Itch-x has an anesthetic to numb the itch. If bites are growing or painful, a doctor can evaluate. ...Read more
