Pectus excavatum

This could be a condition termed pectus excavatum. Seeing a physician could help clarify if this is in fact the case. Usually it is a cosmetic concern but sometimes it can cause breathing related issues albeit rarely.

33 f healthy pain in breast bone above breasts 4 2 days now... Feel good otherwise have asthma but it's been fantastic suggestions?

Costochondritis

Inflammation
Most likely this is just an inflammation of the cartilage tissue about your sternum or breastbone which is a fairly common finding and tends to be self- limiting or goes away on its own. Over the counter medication can help. If it persists then see your doctor.

I have round very mobile ? Lymphs node on bothe sides of breast bone near the sternum area. I have very fibrocystic breasts. Concern?

Testing needed

Bones
Don't assume these are lymph nodes. That is not a typical location. An ultrasound will help make the diagnosis. A mammogram may not be able to visualize this location very well, but should be done as well if one hasn't been done within 6 months.

I have a grey coloured discoloratio on my skin just under my breast bone between my breasts. It is not itchy or red or painful in any way.

Multiple causes

This may be caused by a number of different issues. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation is darkening of the skin that can occur after minor injury such as rubbing or after a minor rash resolves. Seborrheic keratoses are benign grayish to brownish age or wisdom spots that grow in women commonly in this area. See a dermatologist to evaluate the cause of the discoloration in your case.

The way you describe your does not sound typical of a heart problem. It looks like you may have Costchondritis considering your age. However it is a good idea to see your family physician to check out.
