4 1/2 year old grandson c/o pain left side (lower

4 1/2 year old grandson c/o pain left side (lower chest belly area). He states it hurts when he touches his side and that it also hurts even when he doesn't touch his side. My daughter took him to his pediatrician few days ago but it was suggested that it may be an acid problem and Mylanta was suggested. This doesn't sound like an gastric issue to me; the way he explains it it sounds more like skeletal tenderness or muscular. It has been bothering him approximately two -three weeks now.

Hello , im a 16 year old African American Male, and i dont know whats wrong with me. About 3 years ago, i had a pain in my left testicle , mostly in the testicular cord, but it still was a pain i was worried about. I remember when i was in the shower and i hit it downwards by accident and there was a really sharp pain there. The pain came and went then me and my mom went to the doctors and they asked if the pain was occurring at the moment and i said no so they said it was ok. But 3 years later, and i havent had a check up with a doctor since then the pain has come back. But in my right testicle. I m really worried simply because i fear i may have cancer and it may be too late to try and treat it. It may be stress because 2 days after the check up i had with the doctors, my mother passed away. But the pain came on September 3rd around 12am. It was baring, but it was really uncomfortable. I had trouble falling asleep I also had pain in the two sides of the ribs. Now being 20 days later, the pain has went away but its still there sometimes. Now i have a pain in my chest, under my breast , it feels like i cramp , and when i inhale deeply i can feel it worst also when i cough. Also there was in discomfort in my pelvis area and lower abdomen. Please help me, i m scared for my life.

My 20 year old daughter has had lower back pain for a few months and pain in her left hip. They did an MRI and didn t see anything. She called today from college to say that the pain is now in her abdomen and on her left side. She is concerned and so am I.
