Back pain. : This is likely related to an acute muscular spasm, which can take a week or two to fully resolve. Anti-inflammatory medications may help. Exercise would actually be preferable to rest. If pains are not resolved in a couple of weeks then a doctor's visit would be in order. ...Read more

Chest pain when weight lifting. Sternum pain when deep breaths. Stress test, echo, holter , EKG came back fine. Is my heart ok or still possibly bad?

Unlikely angina: Given your youthfulness ur pretest probability of heart artery blockages is low. Having said that lifestyle choices can change that probability. Your symptoms specifically are not consistent with heart artery blockages. Consider musculoskeletal pain, rib pain or pericarditis for instance. If symptoms change, see a doctor ...Read more

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining you and your symptoms warrant evaluation by a physician.

Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Practice safe sex, if you have sex. ...Read more

Difficulty deep breaths,fatigue,sleepless after going to gym 4-5 days xweek. Drinking plenty of water and balanced diet. Should've feeling energetic?

Get OK from Doc: It is normal to be quite fatigued after starting an exercise program however the sleeplessness is the more likely culprit. Your body needs rest after exercise, more intense - more rest. Take a few days to rest or very low intensity. The much more concerning possibility would be a heart problem. Did you get a check up before starting to exercise? Now is a good time to see your doctor. ASAP ...Read more

I started having sharp chest pains 2 hours ago at the top and around my left breast that intensified when I bent forward and took deep breaths. It was?

Unfortunately : This is tough to diagnose over the internet. You require a physical exam. Most pain such as this is caused from inflammation in the chest wall, but more serious causes such as a blood clot in the lung, collapsed lung, or even atypical angina (heart pain) are possible. If you become short of breath or the pain is bothersome go to the emergency room where it can be sorted out. Best wishes ...Read more

Ribs (right breast area) extremely painful.
Been 3 days, clearly, nothing broken but deep breaths hurt, sneezing is painful and so is trying to get up from a lying position.  Not sure should just wait or see Dr?

Nothing is broken?: There are two reasonable possibilities. You broke some ribs or you tore some of the intercostal muscles between the ribs (like the stuff we chew on when we eat ribs). You have chest wall damage and it hurts, especially when you hold your breath to change position. Unless it gets worse, there is no obvious treatment. If things get worse, see a doctor. ...Read more

Dr. Liawaty Ho Dr. Ho
1 doctor agreed:

Pleurisy: It sounds to me like you have pleuritic pain.Any irritation to the pleura- which is the lining outside the lung would cause such kind of pain. That could be caused by different things including inflammation, infection ( viral/bacterial) , autoimmune disease, etc. With the lung nodules and now with pleuritic pain- definitely i would advise you to go back to see your pmd- for further eval ...Read more

Rib cage: The most likely cause is costochrondritis where the areas between the rib segments gets inflamed. Try heating pad and/or NSAID to see if they help. If not, need to rule out a rib fracture. ...Read more
