What is it when I have a sharp pain on my side?

Need to monitor: A pain in one's side may be caused by various factors, such as a muscle strain or pull, among other possibilities.

?Skin?: Your symptoms are not typical of anything but local trauma. For instance, if you do a lot of sit-ups or other activities in the face up/supine position, you can get bruises along your spinous processes (the tips of the vertebrae you can feel/see under the skin). Otherwise, it could be a skin problem or a muscle problem, as both lie between skin ; the bones themselves. See your pcp for and exam. ...Read more

I am experiencing skin pain on my right flank that hurts even when my shirt touches it. I do not have a rash that I can see. What's the cause?

Early shingles??: Not certain, but it does sound like local nerve irritation, especially because of the super-sensitivity. If a rash breaks out from here, see MD right away, I would be concerned you might be immune-suppressed. Of course other ailments could cause, and be very benign. Also, if it is shingles, earlier the treatment, the better. This is always perplexing. Get well. Happy New Year. ...Read more

I have a huge bump on the side of my knee and when touched it hurts and feels hard. I have appointment in october  and what is this should I be worrie?

Get appoint. sooner: This could represent an old injury, bursitis or some other inflammation. Either way, i think october is a long time to wait for an acute problem. First you should see your primary care doctor if it is an orthopedist who has the long appointment time. They can often help you solve the problem and if not can help you get a more rapid appointment with the correct specialist. ...Read more
