This is a rib pain I guess or a matter of mind, how can you so young can get such terrible pain, take a pain killer and forget about the pain. IF you are too bothered take a hot shower bath it really works.

Hi. I almost got into a crash the other day while driving and it scared me really bad. About a minute after the scare, I started having really bad chest pains. Even days after the pain is still there when I go to laugh or if I touch the part of the chest that hurts. Why do I have pains and why hasn t it gone away?

over the last 2 days I have had a constant steady pain on the right side of head/face, not throbbing or pulsing, just a dull steady pain.. from the ear along the upper cheek bone was severe pain, like I had been hit with something across my face, and at random, could be once every 30 min. to a couple of hrs. I would have a sharp piercing pain from where the upper and lower jaw bone meet, across my head.. would last maybe a second or less, but it would almost bring me to my knees... only thing that I could think that it would might feel like is maybe an ice pick from one side to the other and gone.. very direct and sharp... my balance would be a little off, and at times felt like I was almost scatterbrained.. any ideas as to what I might have been experiencing? its now the 3rd day, this morning was a little pain but has tapered off a great deal..
