right side pain unrelated?

ive been having pain in my right arm for quite some time and i thought it was jsut tennis elbow. it goes away after resting and wearing a brace. recently it returned and hasnt gone away...instead it has got to the point where i can barely use it at times. added to that i have pain in my right groin which makes lifting that leg painful, getting into cars painful etc. i didnt connect the two at all. I have also recently developed pain in the right side of my face...only when touched mind you....and this last weekend, i had an incredibly strong pain on the right side of my head...it felt like somebody had hit me hard. this resulted in an immediate strong headache which lasted about 2 hours.
it is really only this morning that i connected them all and realised that all this is happening on the one side of my body.
i know i should go see someone, but doctors here are not required to speak english. I jsut wanted to know if you think this is something i should see to straight away...or can i simply track it to see if anything else happens...or if it continues....
thanks

Re: right side pain unrelated?

I think it sounds serious enough that you should see a doctor. The fact that it's all on one side of your body is not a good sign, in my opinion.

Is there someone where you work who speaks english? Hopefully, you can find someone to go with you who can translate.

I don't know how you can continue to work with these symptoms. What if it gets worse? Is going back to your home country an option?
