I agree that you should see a doctor. Pain in the heart should be going from the centre of your chest and radiating outwards and to your left side. I recently experienced chest pains, and they did not match these symptoms. They felt like pressure in the chest and pain in the general area of heart or stomach. The 3 different diagnoses from three different doctors were; - Stomach problem- I took pills for stomach and pancreas (don't know why)- nothing happened; - Muscle "contracture"( not sure of the english word) in the chest- the theory was that I had a pulled muscle in my chest(?) and it was causing pressure- muscle relaxants and anti-inflammatory were useless; - Anxiety attack- took anxiety pills for 10 days- problem solved, probably issues regarding my about to be born Baby- everything turned out fine thank you-it's a girl. Bottom line is, they all checked the heart first and then tried to find other solutions. You should check it too. It might not be anything, but the heart is just too important not to check.

I have a consistent pain mostly on my left side. It becomes more severe cramping and pulsing pains almost like somebody taking their fists and twisting it into my left side as hard as they can. It feels like I have a rock in my back. I tried to see a doctor about it is and she treated me like a hypochondriac because I told her it felt like a severe kidney infection. Which I have had, so I know how it feels. I feel on the ice 2 1/2 months back, tore muscles in my left shoulder and broke my right wrist. I also have a labour intensive job. The thing is, this pain just popped up this morning, and I have been having the chills. I mentioned that it could be a kidney infection. She said, does it hurt when you pee I was like, no, but I know what feels like and it really hurts She did and abdominal examination ... No pain But the throbbing rock like pain still persists in my left side of my mid back Over the course of the day the pain got worse and the painful Attacks are more persistent. She is a student doctor... Did take my temperature or nothing just began saying, oh well... You could have an std... That would cause it.. Anyways... Do you think it s just muscle tension when it just popped up over the course of the day? I also had a migraine for three days prior to my back pain. Normally I don t take medication for pain because I have a very high pain tolerance. And this is my doctors treat me like a hypochondriac Because I have sit there with a broken are calm and nonchalant.

I have pain that feels like a fist pushing and turning my left kidney. I did have 2 stones removed surgically from the left kidney 7 years ago, but the pain isn t shooting down, it s just the horrible knotting burning feeling. Could a stone be caught in it?

doctor1 MD

at first I wasn t too concerned about just the pain ive been having on the left because I have had kidney stones several times in my life. The pain is on my side I quess you could say as low as the waist area but more toward the side and and sorter toward my back. I use icy hot and that does help with the pain. What has me worried because with kidney stones I never did this or didn t notice, but for almost two weeks now when I urinate it has a brownish look to it and its usually a light yellow or very clean looking. it doesn t look like bloody urine. Its a brownish, like a dirty water look kinda. I guess that s the best way of describing it. I don t know if one has to do with the other but I have also notice that sometimes when I move a certain way or sit down I find myself saying oh, my back hurts. It not unbearable just unconfortable and like I said I didn t think much first couple of times but its every time I go to use the bathroom. It doesn t hurt to urinate at all. I just feel a uncomfortable feeling on my left side a little above my waist area toward the back just a little. I know it has something to do with my kidneys and im getting a little worried. Can you help with what I explained to you. I hope I made since explaining it to you

What Dr. in Lubbock can we have and Echocadiagram done in the office? I have a 75 year old male with heart failure that the pulse ox machine says his heart rate is between 30 and 65 beats. The cardiologist says that his heart is beating 114 beats a min. It is just that the first beat is hard and the other 2-5 are a slight beat. Enough to pick up on the 12 lead but not enough to pick up in a pulse. His feet are swelling and when we elevatethem the swelling goes down after 48 hrs but his lungs fill. When his feet swell they up his Lasix to 60 mg but it does not work for 4-5 days. Then run run run. Where can we have an echo done in Clovis, NM or Lubbock Texas?
