    Severe stabbing chest (maybe heart) pains

    So, at least a month or two ago I have been having severe stabbing chest pains. During the first month I thought it was my heart, and I had a doctors THAT day and he said I possibly have Costochondritis. A week or two after he told me that I went to a hospital and they took X-rays and said it sounded like I have Costochondritis. I still didn’t believe it but there was nothing else I could really do. I called my doctor again to make another appointment for the same chest pain, he told me that with....

    Very Sharp Hip Pain

    I’ve had sharp hip pain for a month. Like, can’t get out of bed, gives out when I run, makes me walk with a funny limp kind of pain. I wake up in the morning and I can’t move my leg for a bit, and when I am able to stand I can’t support my weight without my leg buckling and giving out. I’ve tried ibuprofen but it doesn’t work well. It’s a constant sharp and cold pain that is 24/7 and I don’t know that to do. Any thoughts?

    Back Pain

    I hear so much about back pain and I had 4 failed operations until I went for one more consult. I’m glad I did because my spine was unstable. The only ones my surgeon will see are those with spinal instability. Which means you are in danger of paralysis. I don’t think you should have surgery unless the surgeon tells you that you need . It’s also a tough recovery but once you get through it it is worth it.

    Chronic Wrist Pain for Ten Months

    Last year, I started experiencing temporary wrist pain on the ulnar side of my right arm after using my wrist for long periods of time. The pain would go away after a while of inactivity, but after writing an essay in class by hand one day last December, the pain has never fully disappeared. I went to an orthopedic specialist where I was told I had tendinitis and that immobilization and occupational therapy would solve all of my problems. I started OT and did all of my exercises as I was told to....
