Question: When I kneel down I feel a sharp pain. When I put pressure on my knee to close a drawer with it it caused a sharp pain which persisted throughout the day and I couldnt walk properly and had trouble bending it. It feels awkward whenever I completely straighten this and I find myself limping when I walk. What's causing this?

Brief Answer:
Patella bursitis

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I think of a condition called patella bursitis. This condition has all the symptoms that you just described.
It needs knee braces, some pain killer NSAIDs like Ibuprofen double strength three times a day for 5 days. It is advised to add anti ulcer medicine like PRILOSEC OTC
I suggest to meet a GP and ask about this condition and treatment for the same.
It is advised to rest a lot and not to move when it is painful or the movements that pain you.

Two days ago I started getting occasional sharp pain inside my right ear and occasional shooting pains in my head, also on the right side. My head feels a little tender in that spot. I also noticed some small, painless lumps on my jaw line under my right ear. I have no idea if they re related to the other symptoms. Any ideas what this could be?

My period is now 16 days late, and it is very regular...I use a menstruation tracker. I have been feeling sick to my stomach, getting headaches, severe backaches, and feeling dizzy. I did take a pregnancy test, but it was negative, so I wasn't too worried because I am on the pill (although there were probably a few times where I forgot to take it and then doubled up the next night). Suddenly today, I started getting severe sharp pains in my lower abdomen (mostly on the left side, but radiating to both sides) and severe pains in my upper abdomen, like I was going to throw up...I feel weak and started to have bright red bleeding, although it isn't heavy. all day today before the pain, I was having brown discharge that had stringy clots in it. I am debating on visiting the ER and wanted to ask your opinion.
