I am pregnant and having sharp pains right below my chest. When I move certain ways or sometimes breathe. Could this be just gas?

Yes...but...: Sure - gas is likely. But you have got to be seen to rule out a more serious thing like pulmonary embolus or heart disease. Yes - they are less likely, but given how serious they can be, and that pregnancy increases your risk, you need to be checked. Good luck! ...Read more

What could be causing me to have moderate stomach pains when i eat food? It feels like a stabbing pain in my abdomen

Pain : Pain in this area is very tricky since there are many organ systems in the epigastric area and right and left upper quadrants of the abdomen. - stomach - problems such as gastroesophageal reflux, gastritis, and stomach ulcers can cause pain in these areas - usually worse with eating and worse while laying down - pancreas - pancreatitis, pancreatic stones/blockages can cause epigastric pain, sometimes radiating to the back, can be worse with eating - liver/gallbladder - hepatitis, gall stones or gall bladder disease can cause pain in the right upper quadrant, gall bladder disease can be worse after eating - intestinal - duodenal ulcers, infections and constipation can cause pain there because the colon loops up into that area - kidney - kidney stones or infections can cause pain in the right or left upper quadrant, though many people feel it in their backs, and it is not necessarily associated with eating. - gyne - ovarian pain from a cyst or even an infection from a sexually transmitted disease can cause pain in the right or left upper quadrant, but is not necessarily associated with eating. And all those are just a few of the things that could be going on! so, your best option is to be seen by a doctor and examined to determine the cause of your pain. Reasons to go to the er are: - high fever - bloody stool - bright green or bloody vomit - severe or worsening pain - difficulty breathing. ...Read more
