Premenstrual: dysphoric disorder can be treated with anti-inflammatory medications taken the day before or the day of menstrual flow.

Burning sensation in my right breast, just at the boarder near the sternum. Facing me, it would be at the 1 to 3 on the clock. What causes this?

Burning sensation in my right breast, just at the boarder near the sternum. Facing me, it would be at the 1 to 3 on the clock.  What causes this?

?: Dear, it is impossible to tell based on your description. Many musculoskeletal, skin, or neuropathic conditions can cause these funky, hard to describe pains in different areas. Breast cancer (which is what most would be worried about) seems unlikely but even then, it is impossible to say much without an exam. Visit your doc to get examined and of course, faithfully do your screenings. Best 2U. ...Read more

Suddenly woken from my sleep with nausea and pressure just below the breast bone and felt like I was burning up. No fever?

Suddenly woken from my sleep with nausea and pressure just below the breast bone and felt like I was burning up. No fever?

This is worrisome: If by "burning up" you mean heartburn, then it's probably just reflux esophagitis/ GERD and you can see checklists for managing that. However, no chest pain should be taken lightly especially if you have risk factors for heart disease or family history of early heart disease. If it keeps up and doesn't respond to head elevation and antacids, you should get a medical evaluation. ...Read more

Gnawing/burning feeling below breast bone after eat a light meal. No fever, lack of appetite, decrease urination. I'm always eating peppermint altoids?

Gastritis : Sounds like you have gastritis - an inflammation of the lining of the stomach caused my stomach acid. The decreased urination is probably due to you eating and drinking less because of the pain. See your primary care doctor or a gastroenterologist for additional work up. Ps - the peppermint altoids aren't helping you. ...Read more
