I have a sharp pain under my xiphoid process that makes me short of breath. I was kicked by my 1 year old daughter there. What could it be?

Depends on force

of blunt injury. You could have injured your liver. If you are short of breath, you need to see a doctor quickly because lack of oxygen in the blood is immediately dangerous.

I have a constant pain (feels like pulled muscle) under my xiphoid process. I noticed it last night when going to bed - particularly when lying on my left side. I am 60 yr. old. No history of heart disease. I was out shoveling heavy/wet snow for an hour e

chest pain

While it may be only musculoskeletal, given your age and the circumstances that led to the pain, the wisest course of action is to immediately go to the ER for cardiac evaluation. No adult male with chest pain should assume it is not heart related until they have been properly evaluated. GO NOW WITHOUT FURTHER DELAY.

I'm having pain behind my xiphoid process.it radiates to my shoulder?

Chest pain?

Your xyphoid process is under your sternum and in the middle of your chest, so radiaition to your shuolder could be simple heart burn or could be cardiac related. See your Dr. to get an evaluation and a proper diagnosis for any necessary treatment (and to assure it is not your heart).

Sharp pain below xiphoid process and ribs more pain if i bend forward?

Reflux???

Is is acute or chronic? Is it triggered by certain foods too? Try avoiding caffeine and caffeinated drinks, greasy fried foods, OJ, acidic foods, spicy foods and NSAIDS. If you notice improvement in 2 weeks, see a GI doc for further evaluation.

I have a lot of pain in my lower back and stomach (concentrated on left side) and stomach, now also just below xiphoid process, worse with pressure

Watch and Wait

At 19 years of age, fortunately there is not a lot of serious problems found with these symptoms. Probably has to do with gas movements. However an old adage is if any medical problem is to be experiencing it is affecting her quality of living, your ability to function, and is increasing in frequency, duration, and intensity, you should have it checked out.

Dr. David Earle answered:

I have a "small" hiatal hernia, and lately have had pain and swelling in the xiphoid process and around to my back.Could these be related?

Doubtful

The esophageal hiatus (the hole in the diaphragm through which the esophagus passes) can stretch out to allow some or all of the stomach to go into the chest is located just in front of the spine. It would not cause swelling near the xiphoid process. Maybe excess gas in the stomach or colon could cause that. It doesn't sound specific to any one diagnosis. Hope this helps!

Dr. Noel L. Chun answered:

I have sharp pain with applied pressure to the left of the xiphoid process, also feel something moving in there from stretching forward and backwards.

Musculoskeletal Pain

If the pain can be reproduced by externally applied direct pressure this pain is most likely musculoskeletal pain. Costochondritis or Muscular strain/sprain. The treatment is generally supportive. Topically applied heat/cold; massage; oral analgesics. Sometimes local injection is very helpful.

I get a sharp pain by my xiphoid process and difficulty breathing only when i drink carbonated drinks. What could be the problem.?

heartburn?

Carbonated drinks can cause indigestion and heartburn, also known as gastroesophageal reflux. This could cause chest pain and perhaps even difficulty breathing.
