Chest pains: Such fleeting chest pains are not usually due to lung or heart disease, but can be caused by pinching or irritability of intercostal nerves or muscles which run between ribs. The discomfort is usually a sharp jab which can be brought on by a deep breath or other motion. Any history of strain from exercise or work? These usually resolve in time, but see your physician if they persist or worsen. ...Read more

What does it mean if my vision changes every couple mins?

If the blurry vision persists, see an eye doctor. Good luck. ...Read more

Once every 2 to 3 months I have an attack where my whole body feels like it's on fire/inflammed. It hurts to be touched. What's happening to me?

Muscle or skin pain : If the sensitivity is superficial in your skin, it could be a reaction to medicine, or other allergic reaction. However, if deeper and in your muscles, that may be more like fibromyalgia. This is a condition of sore muscles around the shoulders and in other areas, possibly linked to stress and unrestful sleep. This sounds pretty important, and I would chat with your doctor about it. ...Read more

Is it normal at age 18/19 to feel jolts of pain in my heart sometimes? Happens every couple mins for like a minute then goes away again??

Is it normal at age 18/19 to feel jolts of pain in my heart sometimes? Happens every couple mins for like a minute then goes away again??

No: The heart itself has no pain fibers to give you pain. The blood vessels within the heart do, but you are far too young and the pain you describe not of heart origin. If you look at that location, it has chest wall, swallowing tube, and heart. What you describe sounds more like reflux (swallowing tube) but it could be chest wall. Your doc could help you sort this out, but it does not sound serious. ...Read more

Tailbone hurts randomly every couple months. What can I do?

Coccydynia: Tailbone pain can occur with or without injury. Only real concern is to exclude a sacral tumor (extremely rare). If bowel/bladder habits normal, probably ok. Treatment included nsaid's, and a sitting pillow. Not a doughnut, but a foam wedge with triangle cutout. This keeps you sitting leaning forward without pressure on the coccyx. If persistent, removal is rarely needed but successful. ...Read more
