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.

My Mom is trying to find answers to her intestinal pain. She has been to several doctors and she has been diagnosed with indometrioses. Sorry if I spelled it wrong. Anyway, the doctor that finally gave her that diagnoses simply said now that he knew that was the case, he said to figure out what you can eat you ll have to do trial and error. She gets in so much pain when it is something she cannot eat, it really is not funny. She has the most pain in her intestines in the morning, however she does continue to experience pain during the afternoon also. Can you please help us. I am sorry I did not know it cost any money and I am out of money, so Thank you anyway for your willingness to try. The amount your asking is not too much to ask. I just can t afford it. Thanks again.

A few weeks ago, I experienced a shooting pain that went through my left testicle and up through my left abdomen, and it felt a lot like a cramp or sprain. It went away after a few hours and since then, I've felt a slight twinge or ache in my lower left back. It hasn't really been flaring up for a few weeks, but for about a week now, I haven't been able to get an erection. Help me?
