Question: I dunno what it may or may not be

 firexnxicex4 - Fri Feb 18, 2005 7:07 pm

I am 29 and a mother of four. No drinking, no smoking and no drugs. There are two purposes for my question and/or concern.

1) I have been experiencing sharp pains in my chest for about a year now, they are sparatic. No rhyme nor reason. Just a sharp pain that usually last a few seconds to minutes then vanishes for days, weeks or months.

2) Recently, quite recent, within the past few months I believe, I have been experiencing a pain in my abdomen. Again there is no rhyme or reason to the pain but it usually occurs while I am sitting and is so sharp and severe that I can not move literally. I feel that I would break. It is a sharp pain that last only a few seconds to a minute or two but it is as if you are glued in the position the pain began in. I am not sure if this would be a problem from my tubal ligation but that was done in November of 2002. Also every month or two I get a sharp pain around my ovary that last about two days but the pain is constant and there 24 hours a day for the time I have it.

Can I get help with any of these. I do have a history of migraines and am stressed but nothing uncommon.

Thank you.

User avatar Hi firexnxicex4,
It sounds as though the chest discomfort may be muscular in nature. Ovarian cysts may cause significant abdominal pain and if you have not had a gynecology evaluation along with some diagnostic studies for example, an ultrasound, I would suggest you do so to identify the causative factor.
