Take a test: If you think you might be pregnant check then check a home pregnancy test. They are cheap, reliable and available at any pharmacy. Schedule a visit to evaluate your rib pain.
Had chest pain and sore arms/ hard2 breathe chiro said I have 3 ribs out and my rib cage was twisted. What does that mean & how can I help it at home?
Diagnosis: Those are not medical diagnoses - it's unclear what, if anything, is really wrong with your rib cage or what the cause of your chest pain might be. May I gently suggest that you see a medical doctor?
Shortness of breath, foot swelling, fatigue, depression, and right side rib cage soreness...What could all this mean?
Need an exam: Could be many causes--need to see family dock for checkup.
Probably nothing: But any time there is something newly discovered to be on the safe side the best would be to go to see a physician and get a piece of mind...
What does chest pains & breast pains mean? My chest & breasts have been sore all day. But been happening for days now. And mostly on my left side
Chest pain: Chest pain can be from heart disease, inflamation of the lining of the lungs (pleurisy) caused by infection (pneumonia, etc). Pain may also originate from the joints between the breast-bone and ribs. Indigestion, gall-bladder disease, stomach ulcers and acid reflux into the food pipe may cause chest pain also. Breast pain may be related to hormone changes or fibrocystic breast disease.
What does it mean when your chest hurts & your chest is warm & your head hurts & your body is sore but you don't have a high temp. & your always tired?
To me it means: You should see a doctor, be diagnosed and get treated. Low grade temperatures can be serious too. Your other symptoms are also signs that something is not right and... Hey, I think I just answered your question - well, it's worth repeating. Go to a doctor. Good luck!See 1 more doctor answer
If you are having: Labored breathing please seek medical evaluation. Suspect that the pain is not the actual breast if it corresponds with breathing issues. It could be musculoskeletal or related to your respiratory system (or even cardiac). For chest pain with breathing difficulties please seek medical evaluation now.
Many possibilities: Ribs may hurt for many reasons, such as trauma (bumped into something, somebody poked a finger into the ribs), coughing (bad cold & cough symptoms), jogging/running (breathing heavily for a while), weight training or sit-ups (over exertion while exercising), irritation in the rib's bones/muscles/cartilage/linings, a tumor (rare), etc... If symptoms don't go away quickly, one must visit a doctor.
Cannot say in your: Particular case, BUT. It usually is a soreness in the lung/diaphram or upper abdomen. If you KNOW what you did to strain it (blowing up all the balloons for a party, hookah party, too much dancing at a party... various other party-related strains) then, aspirin and no partying. Otherwise examination of the lungs is a good idea.
Yes: The gallbladder often causes pain under the right ribs, breast bone and radiates to the back.See 1 more doctor answer
No short answer: Probably muscular strain. You may have twisted wrong or coughed or sneezed hard. Also going to sleep in a chair can cause you to lean over the arm & injure the muscles. Sometimes sleeping on your side on your arm will cause tenderness. The treatment I like best is heat, hot shower, hot bath, or more often heating pad to the area for 15+ minutes 4 times a day when you can. Do not burn yourself.
I have never: Seen anything work better for severe rib pain than auricular acupuncture. I have treated people with multiple fresh fractured ribs that narcotics didn't touch - whose pain dropped to a 0 to a 2/10 pain from pain ranges from 7 to 10/10. I really wished I knew about acupuncture when my rib was snapped in half.
In about 17 and the last day r two I've been sore around my rib cage is this because of my weight?
