What could be causing my back to hurt so bad I throw up and it sometimes feels like I am having a heart attack?

Several bad things: While this certainly might just be musculoskeletal pain, it could also be more serious, such as an aortic dissection (which is life-threatening) or an actual heart attack. Kidney stone is possible, but your description implies pain higher in the back. Please get it checked out asap. This type of evaluation is exactly what emergency departments are for. ...Read more

I am having nasty fart like burps that cause me to throw up but my belly doesn't hurt. What could this be?

Slow emptying?: Fart-like meaning smells like a fart, i.e. Fecal, putrid odor? Delayed stomach emptying from ulcers, tumors, neurologic problems, diabetes could explain this. See your doc-get checked. ...Read more

What does it mean to throw your back out? Does it just mean that you hurt your back and can't move or something else?

What does it mean to throw your back out? Does it just mean that you hurt your back and can't move or something else?

When : When people say that they have 'thrown their back out, ' what they really mean is while performing a specific activity (such as gardening, twisting, sneezing, or bending) they experienced an onset of severe back pain. The fact is, 'throwing your back out' is a figure of speech. While there are several causes of this sudden back pain (for example: muscle spasm, arthritis, pinched nerve or a herniated disk), this sudden pain actually remain a mystery. The condition of back pain can be treated in many ways including chiropractic care (patients often experience rapid improvement), pain injections, physical therapy, otc medications, massage and surgical intervention. Each person's pain experience is very personal and differs from person to person. Your doctor can help you determine the specific cause of the back pain (via xray, ct, mri) and prescribe a treatment regimen that will work for you. In the meantime, some things you can do to promote back health is to work towards a healthy weight, lose excess weight, wear comfortable/supportive shoes, ensure your work area/computer is ergonomic and promotes good posture, stretch and exercise regularly and go easy on your back and use good technique when lifting (bend at knees, not the hip). ...Read more

Not uncommon/maybe: "Counter dependency" is that stage when your kid has started getting around on their own and want you nearby, but doesn't want you interfering in what they are doing. This behavior is not unusual, is seldom done without witnesses, and mostly when they are mad at you.It increases if it grabs your attention, and fades if ignored. This is not specific or predictive of autism. Any kid could be. ...Read more

Probably not: It is probably not serious but you should always see your doctor to make sure. In regards to pitching it is very likely that your throwing mechanics are off kilter and needs some fine tuning. Sports specific physical therapy is a must if you are an avid player. I deal with baseball players daily and I do refer all my pitchers to a overhead throwing therapy program ...Read more

I've been having a headache for two days now, the second day got worse, I feel like I'm going to throw up.. When I eat I feel sick. And my back hurts,?

Headache/back/nausea: There are lots of reasons for abdominal discomfort, and not all of them are due to the GI tract. Even "functional" syndromes may be present without underlying "disease." if pain with meals consider peptic (acid), biliary, or pancreatic disease. If bleeding or tenderness is present, this suggests inflammation, ischemia, or infection. Exquisite tenderness is quite concerning. Stop NSAID's & see doc. ...Read more
