My lower back has really been bothering me for about 3 weeks. It has gradually been getting worse and its to the point where it hurts to do anything?

Had rib pains about a week ago and it passed but last night it came back (left side but not as worse this time it only hurts when I lie on my left side?

Had rib pains about a week ago and it passed but last night it came back (left side but not as worse this time it only hurts when I lie on my left side?

Very hard to say: Lilly T, you are young and from a Caribbean country. If you have been injured, it probably is bruised ribs and they take a long time to heal. They may get worse if you lie on them while they are not healed. If you have not had ANY injury, or if you are having any fever, it could be something in your heart or lungs so you should be checked. Good luck to you. ...Read more

Shoulder pain: If there is no history of recent injury or sprain, tendonitis of the shoulder joint is likely. You could try, if you can take them, anti-inflammatory medications like Advil or Aleve (with food) as directed on the label. Treatment for a week is often effective. If symptoms persist or you're not able to take anti-inflammatory medications, see your physician for diagnosis and treatment. ...Read more

I have really bad back pain mostly in my lower area will it get worse in the future it hurts when I bend I bend it a lot down

Back: Back pain can originate from the bones, disks, joints, muscles, ligaments, nerves and spinal cord and rarely other organ systems. Sometimes the exact cause can not be determined. Back pain can improve, stay the same or worsen over time depending on the cause.

It is difficult to predict the future of your pain without a detailed assessment. I recommend evaluation by your primary care doctor. The initial treatment for most causes of back pain are physical therapy. If you fail physical therapy then I recommend consultation with back specialist (pain doctor or spine surgeon) for further workup and treatment. ...Read more

What are some reasons my right side hurts sometimes especially if I lay on my back the pain gets worse?

Back/Side Pain: Positional pain in the back/side is most commonly a result of muscle problems, but could be stemming from the spine as well.

Certainly any tenderness or "deep" pain should be looked into more urgently. Hope this helps! ...Read more

At first slight back pain and I thought it was because I slept on a couch but then got worse and hurt through my chest and couldn't breathe! Why?

Have a fever? Cough?: Pain when taking a breath is due to the movement of structures involved in respiration: ribs, intercostal muscles, pleura (lining of the lungs), pericardium (lining of the heart) and lungs. You may have simply stretched or injured a muscle of your chest wall, but if you have fever or a swollen leg, it could be more serious (like pneumonia or blood clot) in which case, evaluation would be indicated. ...Read more
