Worried about weird pains in my body

So for the last 10 days or so I have been struggling with pains in my upper body in varying degree.

There are like pricks and pulses of pain that come for a short while and then go away. It seems to be most around the solar plexus area, but I also got it in left and right part of the chest and also in my stomach.

I have no idea what this is, but I’m a bit worried. I had my bag packed in case I needed to go to the emergency room, but it’s gotten better the last few days. However I got a appointment to my pdoc on tuesday. That was the first they had available. They told me to go to the emergency room if it got worse.

I’m thinking some kind of infection since the symptoms come at several different places, but I don’t know. Anyone had something similar?

No nothing similar.

I hope you will be okay :slight_smile:

It is good to hear that you have prepared yourself in case you need to go to emergency.

Yeah, at least I am psychologically prepared. I will have to repack my bag :slight_smile:

Yesterday I was feeling so lightheaded and dizzy.

I told my dad my symptoms and told him that I’m telling him in case he needs to call the ambulance

It’s good to be prepared

Do you get patches of tingly, sore to touch skin. It sort of feels like a bruise if you poke it, but it tingles? Then does the patch turn to surrounding pain?

This happens to me. It is called allodynia. It is part of fibromyalgia.

I hope it is not that, but that is my insight.

No, it’s more like the pains are in my internal organs. I had a light beer(2.5%) and the symptoms seemed to get worse. But they also got worse when I had 1000mg vitamin C. So I don’t know what to make of that. Could be coincidence, but if it isn’t maybe it is infection. Immune response gets lowered because of alcohol, any maybe a heavy immune response to the vitamin C. But now it’s like I fear taking vitamin C again because that’s when I got the worst symptoms.

I think 90mg is proabably the minimum recommended, but during infection it can be a good idea to take more. But yes, maybe there is a reaction to the high dose although I never had problems with this dose before. I will try to take less and see what happens. I have some 200mg tablets lying around.

One of the reasons people get chest pain and abdominal pain is from eating big meals; all of the blood gets diverted to the stomach after a big meal this could lead to chest and abdominal pain. If an area doesn’t get the blood it needs then this could lead to the feeling of pins and needles; a lot of caffeine could do this scenario too. Good things.
