hi,
Thanks for writing in.

It is important to know the reason for getting the operation done on your right kidney 5 years back. If there was any stone for which you got operated then recurrent stones cannot be ruled out. It is suggested that you get a review ultrasound scan or CT scan done to...

doctor1 MD

Hi,

Noted the history and understood the concerns.

Your meaning of constipation means passing hard stools with force in spite taking many laxatives.
I would advise you the following in such a situation:
Consult a Gastroenterologist.
X-ray of abdomen in standing position to see for fecolith...

I think I have a muscle strain. It is on the top back side of my left arm. It is tender to touch but feels good when I massage it. It doesn't bother me during the day just mostly at night. I am not lifting anything trying for it to heel. I have been shoveling some rocks for several weeks but have stopped doing that.What can I do to help with the pain? I feel pain in my upper chest area when I eat like acid and I have acid reflux and it feels good to massage that area. Not sure if the 2 are connected with the pain.

HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

It is possible, based on your description, that it is muscle strain.

It may be related to the shovelling that you were doing previously.

In some cases it can take a few weeks for pain related to muscle strain to resolve completely.

I went to the Dr because of tailbone pain after running and doing sit-ups. I also noticed a lump that is very tender to touch about an inch down from the top of my butt. I thought possibly a cyst but the dr said since there was no sinus cavity it was a muscle strain. So today I noticed the lump has gotten bigger and is red. Can this happen with muscle strain? Thank you.

Hello,
Thanks for writing to us
From description it seems to be muscle strain . Lump might be due to haematoma formation(collection of blood). As you noticed the lump has gotten bigger and red, there might be possibility of getting infected.I suggest you to consult your doctor for reexamination....

I have been having some pain in my chest around my heart and just below in my side. I tend to get muscle strain easily when I do any kind of strenuous activity now days. I am 46 years old and things are starting to creek and crack a little more. Because of the location of the pain, I am a little concerned. It does hurt to take a deep breath most times. Could this be a heart problem or just muscle strain?

doctor1 MD

Hi. I can understand your concern.
Ideally ecg and 2d echo should be done first in your case. If both are normal than no need to worry for heart diseases. If the chest pain is disturbing your routine activity then get a chest x ray done to rule out any lung infection or it could be just a muscle...

I am a 25 yr old male. I have been having pains in my lower stomach and left side and across the middle of my stomach and down into my groin for 5 days now. I have been to the ER twice and they each checked my urine and blood and the results were fine. They prescribed me Cipro, Robaxtin and Naproxen. They felt that I may have a muscle strain.
