Got a Medical Question? Ask a Doctor Online!
I am online and happy to help you with your question today.
Other than the intermittent pain, does your son have any other symptoms, fever, problems breathing etc?
I see that you are offline. I'll switch over to the Q&A system. This system works a lot like 'text messaging' but an email is sent to each of us anytime something is posted to this thread. We can continue to work on your question there..... :)
i had to go get a credit card all set now.
he says when he excerises he feels fine it's only when he's sitting in class or not doing much of anything. it doesn't hurt when he goes to sleep. he's been taking protein drinks and works out regularly. no fever no breathing problems
yes he is healthy. he says the pain comes and goes, sharp pain, he's been complaining to me about it now for a month, but the pain is becoming more prominent since the summer. just last week the medical doctor at mass maritime academy said his lungs sounded clear. he'll be shipping out in a couple of weeks on a commercial ship so now i'm worried.
