Chest wall problem: Hi. There is not enough information here to really guess at a cause. I wish we knew your age; that helps make some more or less likely. Your symptoms sound like some issue with the chest wall, which could include trauma, broken rib, costochondritis, pleuritis, etc, etc. It's been going on for 6 months...probably time to go see your doctor. ...Read more

I am having bruising on my inner thighs and legs. There has been no trauma done to my legs. I am taking Aleve (naproxen) for non severe chest pains.

I am having bruising on my inner thighs and legs. There has been no trauma done to my legs. I am taking Aleve (naproxen) for non severe chest pains.

Could be the alleve: I hope your non-severe chest pain is not involving your heart. As far as the bruising is concerned, alleve and other drugs in the NSAID class (non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug) can cause your blood to take longer to clot and small blood vessel bleeding as well as stomach bleeding. Not sure how long you have been taking alleve but it should not be used on a regular basis. ...Read more

Child severe pain in left side of abdominal, bruises, night sweats, sore joints, dizziness. Rashes come and go, loss of appetite. Tightness in chest?

Please have your : Child seen by a doctor as soon as possible. Cannot say what is causing his symptoms here-could be many things. But symptoms are very concerning. The doc will ask about his medical history & about symptoms, & do a thorough exam. They will probably want to do some blood tests too. Other tests needed will depend on the exam & findings. Take care. ...Read more

Is it normal after a severe gallbladder attack to have tender soreness in chest and adominals for 4 days after? Going to doc Wednesday.

Is it normal after a severe  gallbladder attack to have tender soreness in chest and adominals for 4 days after? Going to doc Wednesday.

Not typical: It's not a usual complaint, but if you had severe nausea and vomiting that could account for some muscle soreness. I suggest, while waiting for your appt., that you stay well hydrated, and eat a low fat diet. Eschew nuts, deli meats, dairy, and snack foods. Low fat dairy, pretzels, sherbet are good choices, and use low fat salad dressing. Good luck. ...Read more
