Why do the whole left side of my body ache?

Why do the whole left side of my body ache?

Doctor can examine: Normal, healthy people don't get aches without a reason, so if the entire left side of one's body ached, but the right side was fine, that would be very strange. A doctor would have to evaluate to see what might be wrong. Infections (flu, etc.) and auto-immune diseases can cause total body aches, but not just one-sided. Spinal cord and nerve problems can be one-sided. ...Read more

Are body aches / pain a side effect of cymbalta (duloxetine)?

Not likely: Less than 2% of those studied with Cymbalta (duloxetine) complained of body aches. This was similar to placebo.

Not usually: Steroids generally suppress inflammation which is often the source of pain, and therefore the pain is diminished. Steroids can also, depending on the doses and duration of administration, produce destruction to muscle tissues and that may (but not commonly) create pain. Sounds like you should go back to the doctor who prescribed this (do you have rheumatoid arthritis?). ...Read more

I'm having sharp chest pains on my right side when coughing. I was sick last week with a fever, body aches, and a mild cold. Had the problem since.

You may have: popped a rib, or intercostal muscle between the ribs, when you coughed too hard. This happens fairly frequently, and it will a couple of weeks to heal. Try to take some ibuprofen 200-400 mg 2-3 times a day for a few days and see if things improve. If not, then you need to see a healthcare provider to help properly diagnose and treat.
