What food?: Have you noticed if there is any particularly type of food/drink that exacerbates the symptoms? Spicy food? Acidic food? And what's the timing in relation to food? Right off the bat, a number of things come to mind, such as esophageal spasm, esophagitis, reflux, even gallstone or pancreatitis. More info would help. Tx. ...Read more

See GI doctor: You may have esophagitis (inflammation of the esophagus) due to acid reflux. There's a small possibility you have a condition called eosinophilic esophagitis if you've had recurrent episodes of food getting stuck, especially soft solids (like rice, pasta, breads, etc). Best way to diagnose this is with an upper endoscopy. ...Read more

Probably: If you're hurting, then you should. A pelvic infection would be the most common cause in your age group (20 year old female) and that needs prompt attention. ...Read more

ER visit now: Seems atypical for heart attack but cannot rule out. Also blood clot in the lung and tear in your aorta should be considered and ruled out. Hence any acute onset chest pain deserves an immediate evaluation. Please go to the er. ...Read more

Musculoskeletal: Anything that hurts worse with movement is usually in the muscles or joints. This could be a rib strain or costochondritis. Either way, an anti-inflammatory (advil or aleve) may help. ...Read more

Complicated: There is not likely to be any one single diagnosis that ties all your symptoms together. Right lower quadrant pain always raises the question of appendicitis which always has nausea associated with it so you should be examined today to rule that out (or confirm it). ...Read more
