See doctor : Depending on exactly where it's located, will determine what the exact diagnosis is. It's best to contact your doctor, so that you can have a physical exam that includes an abdominal exam. So, share with your doctor when it occurs most frequently, what makes it better or worse, eating or not eating? These will be clues that will help your doctor determine what it is, and what's best for you to do to relieve it. ...Read more

Having sharp pains on both right & left sides rib cage area under breasts & around back, feels like im swallowing my tongue, nauseated..Help please ?

Please see doc: Sometimes rib/back muscle strains can cause pain like you describe, but... The nausea and the feeling of swallowing your tongue is concerning - that usually doesn't happen with simple muscle strains. Could this be referred pain from an ulcer, from the diaphragm, from the heart? Your symptoms are concerning enough that you deserve a thorough medical workup. Time to go to an urgent care or ed. ...Read more

Burning , hard heavy swallowing, pain in chest between the breast. What could be the cause?

Esophagus issue: These symptoms sound like an esophageal disorder. This avenue between mouth and stomach can become inflamed, leading to chest pain or fullness as well as difficulty swallowing. I would recommend you purchase Omeprazole over the counter, a once a day acid blocker that will likely alleviate symptoms. If not substantial improvement in a few days then seek out a gastroenterologist. ...Read more

Esophageal problem: You have an inflammation of your esophagus. Long standing "heart burn", called reflux, can be serious. Be sure you are drinking at least 64oz of water per day; heart burn is often a sign of cellular dehydration. If you have not had an endoscopic exam, suggest that you get one to know the extent of the inflammation. Once you are diagnosed, there are many options for treatment. ...Read more

Nucleic acid test: Please discuss with your doctor the option to get a nucleic acid test for HIV. If that is negative at 11 weeks after exposure you would be safe. Antibody tests can take much longer to turn positive in some people. ...Read more
