Pain when I lift left arm up above my head feel sharp pain/ pulling in left side of chest breast bone in one area have been coughing a bit cause?

Varies: There are multiple potential causes, and I would not hesitate to be seen for an accurate diagnosis. Among the more common causes are a rotator cuff injury or an injury to the labrum, both of wich are critical to movement in the shoulder. If needed, an MRI can usually show the issue as well. ...Read more

See a Dr. ASAP: You may be having/have a mild stroke and you should be assessed by a physician as soon as possible. If it is not a stroke, ask for complete workup to rule out other issues such as ms or other neurologic issues. It could be a confluence of multiple issues coincidentally happening at the same time, but you need to rule out these more serious issues as soon as possible. Hope all is well. ...Read more

Racing heart/panic: With the limited information available, a lot could be done to figure out the root cause of your problem. Thyroid comes to mind. May want to get checked out for prolapse of the mitral valve as well. A thorough history and physical and, in the correct context, some basic blood work and imaging studies should be revealing. Good luck! ...Read more

Bad head ache, left arm and leg gets numb, heart beating twice as fast, feeling light headed when standing, lower right side of back hurts (cant lay on)?

Do you have any other symptoms such as light sensitivity, fever, nausea, shortness or breath, etc? We also don't know how long the symptoms have been going on. I suggest you consult your doctor for a physical exam and possible X-rays and labs. ...Read more

Weak: Weak pulse and bulging veins in one limb could indicate a serious problem with the blood vessels in that region. Such problems, which include something called arterial dissection and something called venous thrombosis, could threaten the limb or your life. These sort of symptoms should be evaluated right away. Problems with the large arteries and veins in the neck or in a limb are usually first tested with an ultrasound, using a probe placed on the skin. There is usually no discomfort involved. ...Read more

Probably not: There are many signs that could suggest that a mole could be cancerous. The usual signs of trouble are increasing size, change in coloration, bleeding, and change in shape.
