Having stabbing pain in right side of middle back... Severe pain. Hurts to breath but isn't painful to touch. What is going on?

Pleuritic chest pain

Pain
It sounds like you have pleuritic chest pain, and given that it is severe, you should probably be seen by a doctor. A possible cause that I am considering in a 25 year-old woman is pleurisy related to a viral infection. There are other more serious possibilities, such as a small pneumothorax or pleural effusion. Your doctor will gather more information and maybe send labs and a chest xray.

Could be

Pain
left lower lung problem, such as pneumonia, pleuritis, pulmonary embolus. Or it could be upper abdominal problem, such as stomach, pancreas, or spleen. Or it could be shingles. As you can see, the possibilities are so numerous that it is impossible to go through all of them here. Go see a doctor to help figure it out for you.

Lower abdominal stabbing pain, stomach aches, vomiting, nausea, painful sex, constipation, fatigue. Nothing found in ultrasound, x ray & blood tests?

Consider stress

Throwing_up
The good news so far is that your doctor has likely excluded a goodly number of significant illnesses. Have an honest look at your life, diet, relationships, and sleep needs. This may be the best time to talk to your doctor about the possibility of an emotional cause or causes to what you have been experiencing.

Dr. Paul James answered:

What could a pain in my lower left abdomen be it comes and goes stabbing pain but not painful enough to not walk or anything pain is minable?

Inguinal hernia

Abdomen
Most likely source at your age would be inguinal hernia or left testicle. Less likely would be diverticulitis or colon cancer. Inflammatory bowel disease less likely without other symptoms. All these should be considered. Have your doctor examine you and have appropriate testing asap.

I have like a stabbing pain above my right breast close to the center of my chest and it feels worse every time I lift my arms or take a deep breath?

Costochondritis

Open-uri20121024-13703-1e6eld5
The symptoms you describe could possibly be costochondritis. This is an inflammation of the rib cartilage, which if you can see the attached image, is located beneath the breast. Raising your arm on the affected side and deep breaths will aggravate these symptoms.

About 3 mo. stabbing pain deep in r. hip down outside leg to knee very painful from standing to sitting & vice versa & walking - 59 yr. female?

Varies

Low_back_pain
There are several possible causes, usually a detailed exam can determine the cause. The two most common causes are a sciatica (which is an irritation of a nerve in the back causing pain down the leg) and a tendinitis of the hip (known as tensor fascia Lata syndrome). Thank you for the question.
