I Faint From Pain Or The Thought Of It W Hy
I was wondering what the symptoms of muscle damage from over use would feel like and if it is possible I have a fracture. Swelling, pain when moving.
Muscle strains: ..and bone fractures both may have variable amounts of swelling and pain. A muscle stain will generally be more painful when tensing the muscle, and will be stiff and sore when you stretch it. A bony stress fracture may not cause much visible swelling, but it will usually hurt when you press on the bone at the site of the fracture, or when bearing weight. Sprained tendons and ligaments also hurt! ...Read more

I have a pinching feeling in my left eye. Also in the dark feels as though i can't see out of it. What could cause this?
Depends: I am guessing all of this is the left eye only and the right is normal. Nerves around the eye fire occasionally and commonly in the middle years which could explain the pinch. Lowered vision in the dark only (normal during the day?) could be an inherited retinal problem but not likely to be trauma or infection. If persistent, this needs an ophthalmologist to sort it out. ...Read more

Not knowing your age, health history, family history, smoking history, cholesterol level, and additional information specific to this pain, it is impossible to tell exactly what is causing this pain. Best to see your family doctor or internist for a definitive answer as to the source of your pain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Sometimes when I haven't eaten in a while I get a numbing pain on the left side of my abdomen. What could that mean?
Acidity?: Stomach pain can feel like other sensations in the upper abdomen sometimes. A patient who suspects that certain pains are related to stomach acid / reflux / ulcers can actually try taking a good-sized dose of maalox or mylanta to see what happens. If the pains or sensations go away each time, that suggests the pains are due to acidity. A primary care doctor can check for any serious problems. ...Read more

The doctors will check to see where (which nerves) might be the source of the sensations. ...Read more
