Is it normal to have a knot under your breast bone? I have a knot right under my breast bone and at times its sore and I have troble breathing because of it.
Not : Not exactly sure what you are referring to as a knot. At the bottom of the breast bone (sternum) there is cartilage that hardens with age. It is called the xiphoid process. I donâ€™t know if what you are describing as a knot is your xiphoid process. Xiphoid syndrome is when that area becomes painful. Does it hurt more after you eat a large meal or if you move in a particular way (such as lifting something or bending over)? Possibly, it hurts when you breath in and out. Sometimes the doctor doesnâ€™t figure out a reason why it is hurting but sometimes it may due to other medical conditions; like problems with your heart or your gallbladder. On the other hand, maybe what you are feeling is a knot and not your xiphoid process. The best way to find out is to see your doctor and be examined. ...Read moreGet help now ›
