?2 entities: There is no anatomic connection to those 3 areas of the body. It is possible that you're having symptoms of neuralgia(mild inflammation/irritability) of a superficial scalp nerve; and pinched nerve in the rib cage or esophageal spasm. For neuralgia,try TYLENOL (acetaminophen). I feel that these symptoms will resolve without any specific treatment but see your Physician if they persist. ...Read more

Help please! when i swallow i feel a sharp pain in the right side of my throat and it hurts for a lil then stops only when i swallow what is that?

Throat pain: At your age it is likely due to postnasal drip. I would check for allergies . Have you had a recent cold? It could also be an infection if you have any other signs a symptoms. I would first try an over the counter antihistamine if that does not help see your primary care doctor and they will help sort out the issue. This is not likely a serious problem. Good luck! ...Read more

Referred pain: You most likely have a viral or bacterial infection of either the base of the tongue, tonsil or pharynx.
