It may take a week or two but you should be back to normal soon. Always increase exercise regimens slowly to avoid muscle strain and this type of pain. ...Read more

My solar plexus nerve feels tight and "hard". Is there a problem here?

My solar plexus nerve feels tight and "hard". Is there a problem here?

Might be a bone!: Where your rib cage meets in front, at the bottom, there's a bone called the xiphoid process that sticks down. In some cases it can move or twist and become painful--or stick out more. Sometimes women notice this after delivering a baby. If your hard spot is lower than this bone, there are other explanations, but you should see your doctor for an evaluation. ...Read more

My recommendation is to see your family doc especially if major concern is cancer so that we can do appropriate examination ; testing to uncover cause ; give appropriate treatment. ...Read more
