Sciatica: Pain in the distribution as you suggested describes the pattern of the nerve that travels in the leg called the sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve is not the cause of the pain source, it is the result of an irritated nerve typically in the lumbar spine (low back) which are caused by herniated disks, spinal stenosis or degenerative disc disease requiring further evaluation by a spine specialist.

1 of many causes: We have 24 ribs with 24 joints to vertebrae in back and 20 to cartilage connected to the sternum in front. Ribs 11 and 12 "float" in front. As kids we use these joints and can twist like snakes. As adults, these joints permanently fuse but at first we often re-articulate these joints with sudden moves causing a sharp pain that usually lasts until the joint re-fuses which takes up to 6 weeks.

Am 23, an alcoholic, I had this strong pain on the left side of my body near my chest its been three days, pain is almost gone? Under my ribs now?

Be seen: With your history of alcohol abuse your pain could be due to pancreatitis. Pancreatitis is an inflammation of the pancreas and can cause the symptoms you describe. It also cause nausea and vomiting. Another cause of your pain could be gastritis or peptic ulcer. I suggest being seen for a diagnosis and treatment.

I have pain on the left side of my body the chest area it hurts, Its below my nipple whr the pain is, it just hurt bad that come in brief wavee?

I have pain on the left side of my body the chest area it hurts, Its below my nipple whr the pain is, it just hurt bad that come in brief wavee?

See your doctor: Pain in that area is most often related to the attachment of intercostal muscles to the ribs underneath them. It can be related to your activities, especially vigorous exercise. If the area is very tender, you could even have a cracked rib. Ask your physician to evaluate it. If he/she can define the cause, treatment should be easy.
