When i bend over the last couple days i get a very painful stabbing pain on the left center of my stomach. Help?

Going to your doctor: Is what i would say is necessary. Especially considering your description. Very painful is your body crying for help. Please don't ignore it.

Shooting/stabbing pain in neck near left jaw line. Very painful, causes short bouts of dzns. Last few secs, goes away comes back. What could b related?

Jaw pain: Hello, it seems that with your history of a facial fracture and now jaw/neck pain, i would first think of tmj. The jaw joint may become inflamed and benefit from otc ibuprophen. I usually have patients use this as directed for 10 days. Also avoid repetitive jaw motion like gum chewing. See your doctor for confirmation. Physical therapy and possibly a dental splint while sleeping may help. ...Read more
