Okay so I just got over strept throat and a few days ago I noticed my left side of my rib was hurting. It hurts to touch, breath in deep, move, and when I cough lightly. When I m laying down and I sit up with just using my back muscles it hurts as well. And my back also hurts very bad. It s tense and sore and the slightest movement hurts. I m just trying to understand what is a possibility that is wrong and why. Could you please help me?

Hi. I am 15 weeks pregnant and have pretty severe pain in my right upper back and in my right side of my stomach right under my rib cage. The past week I have had issues not being able to urinate at night. I was able to pee this morning but only after about an hour of being awake. Cramps in stomach on right side when I do pee

Hey there, I was just bathing my 4month daughter and as I was getting he out I slipped on the wet floor, causing her to go under for a moment and also unfortunately causing her to bump her head on the bath also. She has a red bump on her head, and is a little lethargic (although she is due to go to sleep as well) Should I keep her awake? or can she go to sleep while I monitor her closely? I have also given her panadol to help with the pain she may be feeling after the bump.

I accidentally gave my 8 month old ibuprofen two hours early. She is 17 lbs and I gave her 1.25 ml only four hours a part instead of 6. She has an ear infection and RSV and I thought I was giving her Tylenol the second time but instead gave her two doses of ibprofen. She fell asleep. Should I be worried?
