When I bend over it feels like pressure on the back of my head?

Head pressure: Pressure there on bending forward can be due to mild strain/inflammation of the musculature or ligaments in your neck which attach to the occiput(back of your skull). If that's the only time you experience the symptom and you have good range of motion of your neck, it doesn't appear to be a serious issue like a bulging disk or arthritic spur.

Stomach acid?: We all produce stomach acid; we need it to digest our food. But excess acid irritates the lining of the stomach - even though it's built to withstand a high-acid environment. If a sore develops, it can deepen into an ulcer. Another acid-related condition is reflux (heartburn). Hyperacidity syndromes are treatable with acid blockers, & many can be purchased over the counter. Do see your doctor! ...Read more

Laying down on my stomach, it feels  swollen and hard just below my sternum. I also have what feels like a  knot underneath my left ribcage. Any ideas?

It sticks out a bit and you may only notice it when you are laying on your stomach. The knot under your left rib cage may be the end of your 11th rib. Another possiblity is something called a lipoma which is really just a hardend peice of fat. No worries. ...Read more
