You need to be seen!: Any pain that has already been present for two weeks and is getting worse needs immediate evaluation.

I fell down on Tuesday and injured my lower rib cage on the right and it's wrapping around to my lower back, also hurts slightly when I take a deep br?

Rib Cage Injury: It is common for such injuries to take a while to heal.
The rib cage is in continuous movement with the breathing and that might cause longer period of healing time.
I would advise simple pain killers for the pain, but if it gets worse or you start feeling unwell you might need your doctor to assess the injury and rule out underlying organ injuries like the liver or the lung as examples. Read more

I had a pain that started under my right armpit and grabbed (like a muscle spasm)- the pain went from upper right chest, wrapped around armpit to shou?

Muscle spasm: You made a great diagnosis. Yes some muscle spasm can go from the front of the chest around to the back. Hint: No heavy exercise, use Advil or Aleve (naproxen) if not allergic and use 2-3 tennis balls in an athletic sock and place under the affected muscle. BioFreeze is an excellent liniment. Read more

I have gout, can I keep it wrapped as its fairly chilly?

I have gout, can I keep it wrapped as its fairly chilly?

Hot and Cold: Gout usually presents with 'burning/hot' and swelling (at least during an attack). If your immediate gout site is 'fairly chilly, ' this is not related to the gout. Consider consulting with your family doctor or podiatrist and have your pulses evaluated. In the meantime, I see no problem with keeping is wrapped for warmth, but comprising the site is not advised.

Does wrapping an ACE bandage or Saran wrap around your waist really work?

Does wrapping an ACE bandage or Saran wrap around your waist really work?

Not Really....: Wrapping yourself in Saran wrap isn't the best ideal to lose weight. The occlusion of the skin increases temperature, causes more sweating and forces you to lose water weight. The problem is you have to replace the fluids from the sweating, so it has a 0 net effect. You are better off at the gym exercising at your elevated zone for 30+ minutes and watching your diet.
