I have GERD and sometimes get brief dull pain under my left breast, now i feel the same one under my right breast/rib area.That normal?Kidney stone?

Not kidney stone: If you have stones, it would not be a brief and dull pain. Besides your pain is too high and upfront above the kidney area. I think you need to see a doctor about this since the pain you describe is not typical for gerd. ...Read more

Unrelated: Almost 23% of the general population have asymptomatic gallbladder stones. Symptomatic cholelithiasis is associated with pain after eating in the epigastric/ right upper abdominal area in a person with gallstones on ultrasound. Your symptoms most likely are not related. I suggest you have it checked by your pcp. Good luck. ...Read more

From last 1.5 months, pain on right side of chest till back, ultrasound whole abdomen diagone kidney stone 5mm & chest xray normal, I do gyming?

See answer: If kidney stone is in your right kidney and if question is whether kidney stone is the cause of your described pain, the answer is "possibly" if no other valid cause of your pain has been established. That said, a 5 mm renal stone in a young adult has the potential to cause problems at some point, and certainly not unreasonable to recommend eswl treatment regardless of whether it is symptomatic. ...Read more

My wife is diagnosed with kidney stones so after medication milk from breasts is not coming. I have a 4 month old baby. Please suggest fr breast milk?

Pump or nursing?: Check with the prescribing MD to see if medication can be the cause. At four months many women's breasts reduce in size but still produce adequate milk. PUMPS use vacuum pressure to get milk out and in some it can become less and less effective. The baby nursing works the nipples differently and they can usually work the milk down. Good urine output indicates baby is getting the milk. No? See MD ...Read more
