I was wrestling with my husband and I felt sharp pain on my chest?

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

Maybe Pericarditis.: Hi, Thank you for your question.

This might be due to an inflammation of the sac that covers your heart. If you also feel short of breath then you should be evaluated by a doc.

Could I have torn my calf muscle? Felt sharp pain while working out.

Could I have torn my calf muscle? Felt sharp pain while working out.

Many possible: There is a very small muscle in the calf that is called the plantaris muscle and sometimes it can get injured while working out. People often describe a sudden sharp pain in the calf. Not always associated with swelliing or bruising. Other possibilities are strain or rupture of achilles tendon but this causes a lot of pain and swelling and difficulty with walking.

What should I do to help this heal? Did dumbell curl, felt sharp pain on the underside of my wrist. Was 2 hrs ago pain the same. Is it a wrist sprain?

Strain: Hi KristinaM, its likely just a strain and dissipate with time. You may notice some mild discomfort and minor swelling over the next few days. It can take as long as a week to heal. If the pain worsens or swelling becomes dramatic or if you have loss of function, it may be a bit more serious and would require a visit to your doctor. Ice and anti inflammatories can helpful for symptoms. ...Read more

While walking, I felt sharp pain in the lowest part of my back. The pain's not constant. I'm 19. I've never felt this pain before. Did I strain myself?

Back Pain: If the pain is associated with movement- bending, twisting etc. It is most likely muscular.

There are multiple categories and types of medications for back pain; depending on how severe your symptoms are, how long you’ve had them, where they’re located, and what side effects you can tolerate:

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?

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.
Good Luck,

YESTERDAY I FELT SHARP PAIN ON MY FOREHEAD WHEN I WAS SLEEPING. ONE HOUR AFTER THE PAIN REDUCE GRADUALLY. NOW SLIGHT PAIN IS THERE ON FORE HEAD?

Forehead pain: This may be due to neuralgia which is an irritation/inflammation of a superficial nerve in the forehead and thus not a serious condition. It tends to resolve without any treatment after a few days. Another less likely possibility is an infection/inflammation of your frontal sinus especially if there is accompanying nasal drainage. See your physician if symptoms persist or worsen. ...Read more

Left neck felt sharp pain. Now dull pain and left arm burns n back n top of head hurts. What could cause this?

Left neck felt sharp pain. Now dull pain and left arm burns n back n top of head hurts. What could cause this?

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. This can cause "referred pain" to your head and arm. A less likely cause would be a disc injury causing irritation or pressure on a nerve to your arm. The symptoms should go away soon, but if not please see your doctor. ...Read more

Felt sharp pain in hip in right hip 4 days ago while walking. Since then been experiencing throbbing aching pain radiating down my leg. Why?

Possible sciatica: More details needed. Radiating pain down the leg may be due to many causes; however, one of the most common is irritation of the sciatic nerve. Nerve compression can occur at the level of the spine, the piriformis muscle, or anywhere along its course. Therefore, if symptoms persist, consultation with a physical medicine and rehabilitation or pain specialist is appropriate. ...Read more

Hi. On bed with one leg on there & leaned on stomach, while looking at phone. Felt sharp pain in side of stomach under breast near rib. Ideas?

Strain: An acute strain appears to have occurred. Another possibility is an impingement of an intercostal nerve or muscle that runs between two ribs. Either event would be caused by the awkward positioning but shouldn't cause serious damage. If discomfort persists apply cold applications for 48 hours and then switch to moist heat intermittently as needed. ...Read more

I was outside and suddenly felt a sharp pain on my back, then another in a different spot. I think something bit me. What could it be? How to deal?

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
