Pain in left side of chest while drinking water is suggestive of a problem in the esophagus (food pipe) connecting the throat with the stomach. Further details can give a clue to the nature of the problem. One possibility is GERD (gastro-esophageal reflux disease).

I put it down to indegestion but am now getting worried as it is still happening. Is this warning signs ? I don t get pains anywhere else while experiencing this. Re Thomas. I am 38, male and white British. My father had history of Angina. I have not taken anything for pain as it goes on it s own after 10 mins or so.

I do not take any other type of drug.It does not appear when I exercise it seems to be random. Thanks for your reply grant e

About a year ago, I started seeing white spots on my legs...they have multiplied rapidly. The dermatologist diagnosed it as Vitiligo. I am currently applying Pigmento ointment (charak). I was sent Vitiligo 30 sublingual pills from Biogetica, as well as Pigmento Tablets. I am a breast cancer survivor (2), and have had reconstruction. I am 68, and 5 4 tall...weigh 154 lbs. I am really scared to ingest the pills for fear that it will do liver damage. One of the pills contain Arsen Sulph . How harmful is this? Please advise. Thank you. Juliet

My 8 year old daughter is undergoing tests to diagnose asthma. it is well controlled. She has been complaining of chest discomfort. It started very sporadically at first (once per month), but now more regular. It happens when she`s just doing quiet things. She points to either her left or right side, it varies, located just under the breast, more towards the outer chest wall. She describes a pounding sensation and `swirling`....that`s her description. It doesn`t affect her breathing. Is it asthma related, or medication.....she`s on flovent and singulair. Thanks.
