I have a sharp pain in 1 spot on my left shin could that bee anything?

Injury?: Did you bump it? Very common to get soreness in this area from even a minor trauma as there isn't much padding here. Also could be from muscle strain, shin splints which are like a ligament strain of the leg muscle, insect bite or other process. If it continues/worsens, see your doc. Good luck! ...Read more

Felt what I thought was a bee sting. When I got up there was nothing there. But I have a red dot in that spot that it stung. It is swollen around it?

Felt what I thought was a bee sting. When I got up there was nothing there. But I have a red dot in that spot that it stung. It is swollen around it?

Possible: While it could be swollen enough that you don't see the stinger, it is also possible there was not one left behind. Not all stinging insects leave the stinger in the skin. So unless you know for sure which type stung you, I wouldn't sorry that you can't find a stinger to remove. Put an ice cube over the red area, take Benadryl (diphenhydramine) if very itchy (Topical anti-itch creams usually don't work well). ...Read more

Should I get checked for a red spot on my breast I think it might of been a bee that almost stung me. It hurts a lot when I move sometimes?

Wait, then go: If you think it was caused by a bee or insect, then the area should slowly get better in time, try ice immediately if swelling after a sting, then warm compresses and Ibuprofen or aleve (naproxen) for pain. If the rash persists, and does not go away, then seek medical evaluation of the area. Good luck. ...Read more

Waste of money!: The only weight worth gaining is muscle. Almost all of us don't need more fat! The only way to gain muscle weight is resistance training (weight-lifting) several days a week for months and months. Otherwise, lift weights regularly 3 times a week, for shorter periods, and your muscles will be toned and you will look excellent! Thin people are the best types to become body builders.
