Brief Answer:
Muscle fatigue may be the reason

Detailed Answer:
It's good to see you
After going through the whole discussion, it seems you have developed muscle fatigue .My suggestion for you would be-
1.You must have diet rich in calcium (1000mg/day),Vitamin D (800 i.u./day) protein(1gm/kg body weight)along with vitamin B6 and Vitamin B12.
2.Regular muscle strengthening exercises of hand like pressing the soft ball or lifting up of dumbbells.
3.Take pain killer like Ibuprofen on as and when required.
Hope this helps.
Take care

I am 31 year mail from India, I am suffering from pain in Chest (Lower Right side) since two years now, I went to neumerous doctors, went for endo scopy, bone scan, MRI etc etc to identify the reason. Only thing which came to fore was I have slight protrusion of Stomatch over diaphragm (Diagnosis fromEndoscopy). Orthopeditions said it is costiocondritis and gave injections of pain blocker. The pain radiates near the joint of sternum and spreads through the lower half of the right chest. Also there are one or two spots where if I press on the ribs I feel pinching pain. From last six month or so I am suffering from back pain also, For that also I went through MRI. Scan shows slight bulging between L4 and L5 (Spine specialist said nothing serious and gave me Vitamin D3 and Calcium as I had Vitamin D deficiency(Blood test was done for B12 and D3)). But location of pain is not only concentrated in lower back region. There is muscular spasm in upper back (near the point where ribs join with back bone). Are there multiple reasons for my suffering since last two years or they all are linked? Kindly suggest so that I can move in right direction towards recovery.

My wife is having pinching pain in lower right abdomen (once in a while), she gets belly pain once in a while like pinching. she gets lower back pain (especially when works standing). she gets cramps like pain for short time (once in a while). We are looking for Baby. Her ovulation was two weeks back(we tested through kit). But the pregnancy test is negative. She had only one ovary, as one was removed 4-5 years back due to twisted ovary. What could be the possible reason. I am worried about ectopic pregnancy? Please advice
