Sharp stabbing pain under left breast by abdomen when I lift something?

Sharp stabbing pain under left breast by abdomen when I lift something?

Probably muscular: If it's only with lifting, it's probably muscular. Many muscles are attached to the lower part of your chest, so that's a common place to have pain. Sometimes, the cartilage along your ribs also becomes irritated and hurts there. As long as you aren't having shortness of breath, and the pain is only with lifting or motion, take some Tylenol (acetaminophen) and Advil, put a little heat on it, and don't worry. ...Read more

Lately when me and my fiancé have sex my lower left abdomen starts to hurt and he has a large penis. Sharp stabbing pain.?

Could be a problem?: An ovary may be getting bumped with the intercourse, the uterus may be pushed or a tube may be pushed with intercourse especially if the male is of significant size. You may have a cyst on the ovary. One could postulate an infection as the cause. I would get checked out if this is a continuous problem. Perhaps changing positions may be better. Try and see. Perhaps, control depth of penetration. ...Read more

Consider hernia: Can't diagnose simply from description, but often times hernias (where the bowel pokes through the normal muscle) can occur in the area you described, and can cause the same symptoms. Usually symptoms worsen during physical activity, like straining. Hernias aren't always dangerous, but if it is bothersome, worth getting checked out. ...Read more

The right side of my stomach hurts when I eat. What should I do? It is like a sharp stabbing pain. I usually end up deviled over crying

Pain: Pain in this area is very tricky since there are many organ systems in the epigastric area and right upper quadrant of the abdomen.
- stomach - problems such as gastroesophageal reflux, gastritis, and stomach ulcers can cause pain in these areas - usually worse with eating and worse while laying down
- pancreas - pancreatitis, pancreatic stones/blockages can cause epigastric pain, sometimes radiating to the back
- liver/gallbladder - hepatitis, gall stones or gall bladder disease can cause pain in the right upper quadrant
- intestinal - duodenal ulcers, infections and constipation can cause pain there because the colon loops up into that area
- kidney - kidney stones or infections can cause pain in the right upper quadrant, though many people feel it in their backs.
- gyne - ovarian pain from a cyst or even an infection from a sexually transmitted disease can cause pain in the right upper quadrant.

And all those are just a few of the things that could be going on. So, your best option is to be seen by a doctor and examined to determine the cause of your pain.

Reasons to go to the er are:
- high fever
- bloody stool
- bright green or bloody vomit
- severe or worsening pain
- difficulty breathing. ...Read more

I keep getting sharp stabbing pain left of stomach under ribs. Told allergic to milk. Told cheese and yogurt ok but no to milk. Is this ok? Why pain?

Not typical: Even severe food allergy does not cause stabbing pain under the ribs If you were told that you could eat yogurt and cheese, I suspect that your doctor thought you had lactose intolerance and not really milk allergy. Nonetheless, you need to talk to your doctor again or seek a 2nd opinion. Whatever it is, it is not from milk allergy. ...Read more

Pain in the spleen area, already have had tests run for pancreatitis and lower and upper endoscopy. Ct's from a couple months ago were nomral. I am experiencing stabbing pain in my left side, just under my rib cage which radiates straight down my abdome

Muscle spasm: Upscale spasm of the abdominal wall (or muscle strain, tear, etc.) can ALS be a cause. Sometimes people will even feel a bulge which sounds like a hernia, but may in fact be the contracting muscle. Usually the area is manually massaged, and there is pain relief after a few minutes. A ct scan should be able to tell the difference, but it is very unlikely to be a hernia in that area. Try aspercreme. ...Read more
