The other week it felt like something was blocking my throat when I ate, I put this down to phlegm as I hVe recently had a chest infection, the feeling then went. Over the last couple of days it has come back but further down my neck, hurts when I swallow food and liquids and also when I burp. Please advise.

I ve been having this sharp pain every time I eat or drink. It especially hurts when I drink something hot. It s a dull pain if I m not eating or drink. It kind of feels like something is stuck all the way down in the center below my breasts. It hurts so bad! What could it be?

Hello. About a half an hour ago I tried swallowing 2 glucosamine/chondroiton pills (something I do almost every day) and one went down the wrong pipe, the other one I immediately spit out. After roughly 5 minutes of coughing (I could feel it in my chest and was having a hard time taking a deep breath in or out), I finally coughed it out (the whole pill, not pieces). I can talk fine now but every few minutes I feel like I have a rattle in my lungs (like when you have a cold ) and I have to cough to make it go away. I ve read that I may have a bout of coughing for a while after coughing such an object up, but how long should I continue coughing before I need to go get checked out, if I even do. I feel fine (other than my chest is sore now) and I m certain I got the whole pill up. I see sometimes you ask for an age with this type of question - I m a 45-yr old female.

My 10 yr old son has frequent stomach aches and is a bedwetter (almost every night). Some doctors have tried pills to keep him from wetting with a little success, but not alot. He also complains of stomach aches, usually in the evening. He s not diabetic, and they ve tried a lot of different things for his problems but nothing seems to work. Is there something we are missing?

Hi, About 10+ weeks ago, I began having a pain in my testicles (I am 16). This pain was accompanied by cramps in my groin, and some pain radiating down into my legs. I went to the doctor and he didn t feel anything abnormal, so he booked me for a testicular ultrasound as well as did urine and blood tests. Everything came back normal. The pain in my testicles began to go away and was replaced by a very sensitive scrotum and what feels like hard/swollen epididymis only after ejaculation. As well my stomach and back began to experience more discomfort. I went back to the doctors again, he told me everything still felt normal and booked me for a stomach ultrasound, which came back normal. I also had a massage therapy and was told all my muscles were very tense. The next day I began experiencing pain in my penis, which has gotten better but is still there. Also recently I ve noticed that the lymph nodes in my groin and armpit appear swollen (possibly because I had the flu last Thursday). This has all caused me a lot of mental stress and would just like another opinion on whether it s stress/muscular, hormonal, infection, or worse.
