Pleurisy: A condition called pleuritis or pleurisy is inflammation of the pleura (lining between the lung and the chest wall). This pain can be more one-sided and not seen on chest x-ray.

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

Unclear: There are many parameters I do not know that would be helpful : how long you have had this cough, are you bending your head below your waist, have you eaten enough food / drank enough fluids, are there other symptoms. The increased pressure within your body during coughing actions can sometimes cause pressure in your head. However you will need an evaluation by a professional to seek more help... ...Read more

I've been having sharp pain that starts from the side my head and travels to my throat and to middle of my chest pain last for one to two minutes.?

? 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

Referred pain: You most likely have a viral or bacterial infection of either the base of the tongue, tonsil or pharynx.
The pain in the ear is likely referred to the side of the face where the ear is located. If your hearing has not changed, the pain is referred to the side of the face (ear) because the sensory nerve that innervates the back of the throat also innervates the front of the ear canal. See ENT doc. ...Read more
