In Shool, my right side in my liver, and upper front/inner right leg begins to sting. My liver stung Once, and I thought It was my appendix. Then I was told I would be on the floor, crying, if that happened. Then a day later, my right leg started stinging, 5 bursts of pain in like 8 minutes or so. It doesn't hurt much (except the liver thing) but it pisses me off, and it's freaking me out. I don't want to see the doctor, because I'm afraid I'm gonna go there, they're gonna scan the hell out of me and then I find out that It's just because I'm fat or something. I DO have stretch marks, so I Don't know if it's cause I'm a 200 pound 14 year old.
[QUOTE=Chris220;32403343]Sounds like you might be better off with some hired muscle[/QUOTE] YEAAAAAAH! The bladder has agreed, but the lungs have started their strike. Small asthma attacks... my god. The heart is slowly being muscled in on. We strike now.
How often should I stretch and what stretches should I do?
[QUOTE=MangoJuice;32403654]How often should I stretch and what stretches should I do?[/QUOTE] Stretching every day can help your muscles (so everyday if you can). Usually in the morning is the best. I do a routine where I stretch my calfs and heel (but I'm a runner so what do you want?) but you could just try and find a regular routine on the internet you would like to do. Stretching once you wake up, and when you come home can be good (or before and after you work out). If you know any yoga that would help a lot as they are mostly just stretches.

[QUOTE=MangoJuice;32403824]Thanks, will try stretching every morning.[/QUOTE] No problem! May I ask why you want to stretch? To just get into shape, or to train?
[QUOTE=Kenja;32403852]No problem! May I ask why you want to stretch? To just get into shape, or to train?[/QUOTE] I took Tang Soo Do for 7 years and felt pretty great. I stopped a couple years ago after I got my black belt and started feeling like burning, tearing, achy shit.
[QUOTE=MangoJuice;32403897]I took Tang Soo Do for 7 years and felt pretty great. I stopped a couple years ago after I got my black belt and started feeling like burning, tearing, achy shit.[/QUOTE] That always sucks. Well good luck with the stretching!
Anyone know if clicking your joints is bad for you or not?
i hasnt sleeped in 3 days and im dying but cant sleep and instead am sore and angry how do i fix it
cracking your knuckles gives you arthritis
[QUOTE=MasterG;32405897]Anyone know if clicking your joints is bad for you or not?[/QUOTE] It's not known to give you arthiritis, that's just an old wives tale. However you might lose some grip strength if you click your knuckles daily for 30+ years, other than that keep clicking.
[QUOTE=greagaerge;32406926]cracking your knuckles gives you arthritis[/QUOTE] Nope. Common misconception. It was disproved a while ago - at most, it'll give you a weak handshake and [I]maybe[/I] freaky-looking knuckles. But that might just be me and me freakishly long thumbs. [editline]21st September 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=ScoutKing;32402304]Doctor, NOW! No really. See a Cardiologist if this is a reoccurring issue.[/QUOTE] It only hurts very rarely and only lasts for about ten minutes. Should I still go if it's at that rate?

I crack them almost hourly :v: [editline]21st September 2011[/editline] Okay not quite that often but you get the idea.
I can make me knees crack by turning my lower leg.
My heart has been aching really bad lately, I think it's because i've been stressed out alot lately.
[QUOTE=Sir Spicy Buns;32410097]My heart has been aching really bad lately, I think it's because i've been stressed out alot lately.[/QUOTE] Take lots of deep, slow breaths and drink lots of water. Also, try feeling your chest where your heart beats. Does anything feel abnormal, like something's being pushed out of the way? I had some similar pains last month that went away.
Shit. I think I might have arthritis.
I used to get these weird small heart attacks every 2 weeks since I was a little kid, it's only happened like twice in the last 6 months though. If my torso moves in any way i get intense pain in my chest even more. No numbness in my arms but definite pain where I assume my heart is. It's a great party trick.

You would also get discomfort in other areas of the upper body, shortness of breath and other symptoms which may include breaking out in a cold sweat, nausea, or light-headedness.

It sounds like PCS. I had PCS a lot when I was 10-14. but after I turned 15 I really never had that happen again. If you think it's something else besides PCS, i would go see a doctor/cardiologist. It could be PCS, or it could be a host of many things. Esophagus Lungs Muscles surrounding your chest Heart? Arteries/pathways. Etc etc. Again, if you don't think it is PCS, and if you're concerned it couldn't hurt to go to the doc and get a quick check up.
I really hope it's PCS, I've been really scared about it since I was young.
How old are you and how/long often has it been happening?
15, happens very rarely, last few seconds, until, at least, 1 minute.
[QUOTE=sa2fan;32419609]15, happens very rarely, last few seconds, until, at least, 1 minute.[/QUOTE] He meant how long has it BEEN happening for. ie a month, a year etc.
[QUOTE=sa2fan;32419609]15, happens very rarely, last few seconds, until, at least, 1 minute.[/QUOTE] I mean, if i was to make a bet, i would say it is PCS, because When I was 15 I had that happen to me a few times. And I know a lot of people who had this happen a lot to them when they were that age. If you're a healthy person and all. Then I wouldn't be too worried and I would just attribute it to being PCS.
Thanks, it made me less worried. :)
Next time it happens, inhale real quickly and hold it, and then exhale rapidly. I've heard it helps.
