Random sudden sharp stabbing pain on RLQ w/pain brought on by deep breathing. Also amber colored urine and little output?

More info needed: Hi Ashley,

Watch out for other symptoms like nausea, vomiting, fever, pain with urination. It may help narrow down the diagnosis. If the pain persists and is very severe, I'd consider being seen by a local ER. ...Read more

Random sudden sharp stabbing pain on RLQ w/pain brought on by deep breathing. Also amber colored urine and little output?

Exam needed: If the RLQ is tender to the touch and there is persistent pain, appendicitis has to be considered and for this reason an examination by a physician is needed. Another possibility is a muscle strain or inflammation from some recent physical activity. A simple urinalysis and microscopic exam would be helpful in ruling out a urinary tract problem. ...Read more

I occasionally get a sharp stabbing pain under my left breast inside my chest, it comes on suddenly, lasts for a min then leaves suddenly, what is it?

Off and one stabbing pain for two years now in my right chest not to far away from my armpit. It seems to happen when I smoke and drink.

May be muscle spasm: Stabbing pain on one side of the chest can often be due to spasm of the large muscle in that area. This would seem even more of a possibility if the sensation was more forward in the chest--in line with the front part of the armpit. In fact the muscle that may be involved, which is called pectoralis major, is part of the front of the armpit itself and extends across the chest towards the middle. ...Read more

Random chest pain that comes and goes on left side been like this for a long time ive had ex rays ekgs blood test all fine its like a stabbing pain?

The twinge: This is quite common and harmless. I believe it results from a little fold in the membrane that lines the chest. I'll bet that it vanishes if you inflate your lungs to the maximum. "Texidor's twinge" is knife-like, can be intense, does not take your breath away, and is gone in a short time. It's not even worth a workup. Be thankful for good health and get on with your life. ...Read more

Female, 22 had pain in lower left side chest but since last 3days pain is in upper right heart (aorta maybe)feels like a stabbing pain when I move arms?

Million to one: I know that when chest pain occurs it is human nature to be concerned about your heart. I do not feel that is a concern. Heart disease in a 22 year old female would be a million to one shot. Also the fact that it duplicates the area of the pain upon arm movement is suggestive that the problem is musculoskeletal. Give it a few days and if it does not resolve seek attention. ...Read more
