    Pain when swallowing

    Hello, Yesterday around 7pm I was sipping on some tea until I swallowed wrong. It was very painful, I did not know what was happening. Now, I am still having the pain each time I, drink or eat. It hurts so bad, I can feel my head hurting when swallowing. I was hoping it will get better the next day, but guess not. It's a sharp pain kind of like having needle stuck in there. Anything I can do? I am taking throat numbing meds, but not helping.

    Pain In Chest / Upper Breast Area

    I was doing some stretches recently and now my upper chest area, the spot right between my neck and my breast is having periodic severe pain. There even looks like there may be a bruise there. The stretch I was doing involved holding the edges of a bench with both my arms shoulder length, lowering my body and legs downwards, and then lifting myself back up, so as to work the bicep muscles on the arm. As I bent my elbows to lower my body, and was on my way to lift myself back up, as I started the....

    Back injury 10 years ago still bothers me

    Hi, I'm a female, age 22, 5'4'', 105 lbs. When I was in middle school (around age 12 almost 13) while trying to do a handstand for PE, I landed badly on my face (lol) and chest and some of my stomach area, and I fell sort of like a...scorpion landing, where my legs were in the air and curved toward my head. Basically I landed pretty badly and my body was curved awkwardly, and it was very hard to move afterwards. But I didn't want to tell my mom about it (she had breast cancer....

    Abductor Digiti Minimi Hand Injury

    Let's first start off by saying I'm a 17 year old male. Now, a few months ago I got pissed off and punched a barn wall a few good times. There was pain of course, extreme swelling, and bruising on my right hand around my pinky and ring finger. I noticed that I was unable to move my pinky away from my other fingers and still cannot to this day. The pain has gone away, so it's not like it's painful to move it. I just can't, physically impossible for me. I went to the Orthopaedic....

    Painful Red Bump Leaking Pus

    I am an 18 year old male. I am very active and have never had any health problems. However, about a week ago, I found a tiny red bump about an inch below my bellybutton, and it itched and hurt a little. (This is almost definitely unrelated, but I noticed the bump about 5 minutes after I tucked my shirt in... At first I just thought the buttons scratched me or something) Over the next few days, it grew until it became a lump the size of my thumb, sticking out about a half-inch from my stomach. It....

    Back & shooting pain

    I have lower back pain with shooting pain down my leg. Most days are hell. Today this is my problem tomorrow it will probably be my mid back. I feel like I'm falling apart & One of my surgeons said they can do surgery to get maybe a little relief but it's a risky and could cost me my life. Anyone else struggling with this problem?

    Thumb pain

    I've been having pain in my left thumb and Down the side of my hand for nearly 6 months and it's affecting day to day things like carrying bags, holding my phone ect. I went to the doctors who said it's RSI and to wear a support only issue is it's so painful and is worse in the support! I've ended up buying a few different kinds but all hurt bad. Anyone else had this and any advice? Thanks
