    Unexplained Shoulder Pain

    For over a month I have been suffering from shoulder pain that radiates into my arm and hand on my left side. My hand feels numb and it hurts to use my arm. I went to the doctor about a week after the pain started. She thought I had strained my shoulder and organised some physio for me and some pain relief. My doctor said she could give me some time off work but I felt I was still able to work as I am right-handed and I can hold my left arm in front of me. She advised against the use of a sling as....

    23 years old - Scared with my body/ strange arm pain

    (Sorry for my bad english) I am 23 years old and my last two and a half months have been a horror movie - I had never had major health problems. I am writing this to vent and because it may be that someone has suggestions on what to do or what's happening (if you bother to read this will) ... At the beginning of March I had a "wrick" feeling on my back as I swept my room. At that moment I did not cared that much and I continued to clean the house ... I had already had one or another....

    Sudden and Rapidly Worsening Pain and Swelling in Little Toe

    This began rather suddenly yesterday. I was in a meeting in a conference room which was a little cool, around 65 degrees. I was wearing snug but comfortable sneakers. After sitting for about 2 hours, we took a break, I stepped outside for a smoke and started feeling a painful itching sensation in my left little toe on the way back to the conference room. The meeting lasted about another 1.5 hours and the sensation seemed to get a little worse over that time. After the meeting, I started to feel it....

    Suffering from neuroma after leg amputation.

    Hi, Several times a month I get terrible pain in my stump that keeps me from sleeping, sitting and doing anything to enjoy life. It usually lasts 3-4 days. I saw a Neurosurgeon and she does not want to operate. This is probably because I contacted the Minister of Health here in Canada. She had asked me to contact her after I had a nerve block. Well, I had three and contacted her, but she or her secretary never called. This left me no option but to write to the Minister. I soon got a call from her....

    I need to know what's wrong with me...

    Hey. Question! Since I was 14 I've had hip issues and pain. I've also played sports and have been active all my life. Now that I'm 19, it's horrible. I can't stand for more than 10 minutes and it kills me not only in my hips, but also my knees. And I also have burning all down my legs from my hips to ankles. I can no longer be active. I was given neurotin, but I only take it when the pain is unbearable. It's getting worse and worse. What could it be because it's scaring....

    Gallstone pain

    I have gallstones and this is the first tiime in 7 months that I have constant pain for 3 days now. Even percocets just take the edge off. I can t keep anything down except water. The pain started at 3am wednesday and goes steady with a couple of hrs of sleep inbetween. I can't take it anymore and I'm worried because it have never gone on for days like this before. Should I go to the ER or is this normal? Thanks in advance Pauline
  • Try mindfullness

    Try mindfulness meditation. Pay attention to the pain and accept it while doing mindfulness practice so that the body's fight or flight system doesn't kick in and exacerbate the situation. Try to be aware of the present moment with acceptance. Go to and order Professor Ronald D. Siegel's class: The Science of Mindfulness: A Research-Based Path to Well-Being. Wait until it's on sale. Also, you can go on Amazon and search for books and CD's by Kabat-Zinn.

    Girlfriend is having major numbness

    So my Girlfriend recently went to the Hospital yesterday due to some slight numbness she was having, They told her there was nothing wrong with her Heart or Brain (As they scanned both). However now she's having a loss of sensation where the numbness was and now there is pain in her stomach (She said it's at least a 6 or 7 on a 1-10 pain scale with 10 being the highest). She also says it isn't gas related as she's having no issues there. She says the numbness has spread/grown severely....

    Finger pain solved by cracking?

    Several months ago I jammed my pinky playing basketball. The swelling and color returned to normal. However, there is a slight pinch of pain (nothing major whatsoever) that lingers randomly. When I "crack" my pinky, the pain is resolved for several hours. Is there a specific reason for this? Thank you for the help!
