Pleurisy: It sounds to me like you have pleuritic pain.Any irritation to the pleura- which is the lining outside the lung would cause such kind of pain. That could be caused by different things including inflammation, infection ( viral/bacterial) , autoimmune disease, etc. With the lung nodules and now with pleuritic pain- definitely i would advise you to go back to see your pmd- for further eval ...Read more

Not likely: Spot fat loss is not the way it works. You tend to loose fat all over , but a human body tends to have more fat in certain areas more than others. Some of this fat distribution is genetic, thats why people come in different shapes and body builds. ...Read more

What is causing back pain only when leaning to left and taking deep breath?

Hard to say.: If you reproduce this symptom with this particular movement or maneuver, then you are more than likely creating a mechanical problem with bone, ligament or nerve involvement causing your pain. See your pcp for an exam if this is more than a nuissance. ...Read more

43 yro f gripping pain in left side of chest with difficulty taking deep breath. Pain lasts for 2-5 min then wanes. Increasing pain each return.

Doctor can examine: A person with left chest pain must see the doctor right away to find out why. She should be going to the E.R. if she cannot reach her doctor. If it turns out to be a heart problem or heart attack, a collapsed lung, a pneumonia, a blood clot in the lung, bad heartburn, costochondritis (inflammation of the rib joints), etc..., she will be in the right place at the emergency room. ...Read more

Started working out. Today sudden upper left back pain when taking deep breath and now hurts when i move/walk. What could it be?

Muscle strain: you probably have a muscle strain and spasm from working out It can be painful and sharp It does hurt more with movement Rest it, moist heat, and some advil (ibuprofen) If you get shortness of breath or increased chest pain then followup with ER but I feel that it is just a muscle strain at your age ...Read more

Experiencing a very sharp pain in left shoulder under end of blade it where soft tissue is. taking deep breath bending down is when it's most painful ?

Peri scapular pain: This sounds like periscapular pain. The muscles that surround your shoulder blade can get strained or overworked either due to a shoulder injury (rotator cuff) or from certain overuse activities. Periscapular pain can be treated by massage to that area, heat can help, physical therapy to rehab the shoulder and also address the periscapular muscles and topical or oral anti inflammatory medications ...Read more

Hi , I am having a pain on my rt side of stomach just below my ribs while taking deep breath.
Pls advise?

Pleurisy: Your description really sounds like you have pleurisy. Pleurisy is an inflammation of the lining of the lungs after a viral or bacterial infection. It usually responds well to anti inflammatory treatment and time. Occassionally other sources of pain with breathing include fractured ribs and collapse of the lung (known as a pneumothorax) or inflammation of the rib cage (costrachondritis). ...Read more

I have right side pulmonary ebloism and i start warfrain bt still when am taking deep breath feel pain?

How long ago?: It takes time to heal. Warfarin prevents new clots and allows healing of the old clot but it doesn't stop pain. If this is acute, you will need an analgesic, like Ibuprofen or Aspirin (which increases your risk of bleeding) along with the warfarin to relieve the pain. If the pain resolved and came back, i'd check with your doctor. Be sure your inr is therapeutic. (2-3). ...Read more
