You : You may be straining your back muscles or facet joints. I would recommend alternating with your right side and sleeping on your back. You may also benefit from trying out a different mattress. If it does not improve or worsens i recommend discussing it with your primary care doctor. Good luck! ...Read more

Appendicitis vs cyst: Hello! In that area, and without other information, I am most concerned about an ovarian cyst vs. subacute appendicitis, vs. lymph node inflammation. You should be seen by your regular doctor or an ER to be examined; let them know if you've had any fever/chills, nausea/vomiting, changes in your menstrual cycle; also things like age and factors like smoking can help make a diagnosis. ...Read more

Contusion: Such an injury causes contusion to tissues like muscles and bones. Bone contusions or bruises in particular can cause rather long term discomfort and tenderness. Of course, if significant pain persists, a physician should examine you and an xray may be ordered depending on physical findings. ...Read more

Hip or back pain: Back problems can give you hip pain and hip problems can give you back pain. Probably not enough information here to help you know what the cause is. May represent greater trochanteric bursitis. I would use an anti-inflammatory like aleve (naproxen) 2 pills with food 2 times a day for 5 days. Ice the area for 20 minutes up to 3 time a day. Think that should help. ...Read more

I developed a bump in my lower back on the left side above the sacrum, it's only sore when pressure is applied.This happened after deadlifts at the gym

Suspect muscle: This could be a cyst which may or may not be infected. With this there could be muscle or bone or joint or combination with tendon and bursa involvement as part of the pain. Sometimes at a gym there's risk of infection. Sometimes if you look at the bump there may be a small hole that may be plugged indicating a possible inclusion cyst. ...Read more

Have sore to touch spots on left side only in buttock, lower back, upper back, neck n chest. No injury or exercise.  What could it be?

All on left side?: You're young at 28, but a pattern of spots on one side of the body suggests shingles or herpes zoster. If so, you could develop more pain than soreness. Best to get checked because some medications can help to prevent this developing and others can help manage the pain. ...Read more

Im having left side chest pain, neck, lower back and arm painwent to doctor and a sonogram of chest was done and came back ok pain is sore to to touch?

Need more info: You could be suffering from a skin problem that has yet to show it self or you could have a "pinched" nerve in your spine that innervates that part of your chest and back. That kind of problem usually does not show up on a sonogram. My advise is to consult with a D.O. (an osteopathic physician) as I feel that from your report the problem in nerve irritation & he/she is skilled in spinal problems ...Read more
