Hi, I am a 25yr old male with no kind of medical problems currently known. I am having strong chest pains at various locations on left side of chest wall . I will have them mostly near the sternum on left side and sometimes below the nipple close to bottom of ribs. Also, I have noticed a pulse like throbbing in my left bicep at times. I am a smoker but never had this problem and also my brother has recently passed and I feel it may have something to do with the ache I have been feeling. Also, only once actually I was having pain and could actually stretch and feel only the left side near the heart stretching. All of this is somewhat sudden and any advice would be appreciated.

Hello, I am a 20 year old female, the past month or two I have had random bouts of stomach pain and/or back pain. The back pain is usually on my left lower side above my hips but can be on the right occasionally. The stomach pain has never been localized.

I experience extreme pain at night while sleeping when I try to change positions. It hurt worse if I lay on my back. I don t have the pain any other time. I can exercise sit up and I even have to sleep on the couch some nights sitting up with my legs up. I don t feel any pain at this time. I only feel in the bed when I switch from side to side, lay on my stomach and on my back.
