Condition known as a costochondritis which is an inflammatory condition of the cartilage of the sternal region. It usually occurs after a flu or cold and gets better over time. Over the counter medication can help with symptoms but get checked to make sure it is not heart or lung related.

My sternum is painful with an egg shaped knot at the base. I had an X-ray and was told nothing looked abnormal. The pain is low grade but constant.

Sternal pain

Pain
More history and exam is needed to further make suggestions. Chances are the pain is coming from the muscles around your sternum or a cartilage attached to it. The condition is known as costochondritis. Xrays would be normal in that condition. You warm applications, anti-inflammatory medications such as Ibuprofen/Naproxen would be appropriate, avoidance of activities known to make it worse.

Immediate Help

Endocrine_tumors
If you are throwing up Bile, you should get seen by a doctor immediately. I would suggest an Emergency Room so if they wish to do any procedures/tests they can. Otherwise, see your primary care doc this morning and discuss in person.

Biliary
those symptoms are suggestive of a gall stone passing into the plumbing that drains the liver (bile duct). The medical term is choledocholithiasis. It can lead to a severe infection in the liver. If your symptoms are still present, you need immediate evaluation. If you are feeling better, you need to see a doctor ASAP to get some liver tests and an ultrasound or ct scan.
