So when i breathe, my left side of my neck hurts. Now it stopped and its under my left ear. I had blood done December 30 2013 and January 14 2014 to rule out any signs of a serious condition and i came put fine with no heart trouble at all. What do you think jt is? My back does tend to ache due to poor posture and i took an asprin to releive some of the pain.

My daughter warmed up lasagna for lunch and she took bite that was apparently way too hot. She has been complaining that her chest hurts when she breathes. When she sleeps, she is good, but once she wakes up, it hurts. I am taking her to the Dr. s, but wondering if there is any answer as to what is making her hurt.
