Pressure Just Below Sternum
What causes a 5 minute burning pain in left ribs below armpit? This was jus below the bra line. Pain was worse when pressed on ribs.
Most would say......: ......costochondritis or something like that because of what you mentioned as being exacerbated by PRESSING down on the ribs. However, I don't have a good reason why it should subside in 5 minutes and why it should be a BURNING pain which generally suggests the entrapment of a nerve.

Hello. : Hello. I will try to be as helpful as i can but i canâ€™t diagnose your symptoms. We can go through possible symptoms of problems with the gallbladder or pancreas. Cholecystitis begins as intermittent pain in the right upper quadrant of the abdomen. Overtime the pain worsens and becomes constant. The pain can also be referred to the shoulder blade in the back. It usually increases after eating fatty or greasy foods. Other symptoms can include a mild fever, tenderness or enlargement of the gallbladder, diarrhea, nausea or vomiting. Gall stones may cause no symptoms in some people. It can cause cramping pain in the right upper abdominal quadrant and in the upper abdominal midline if a large gallstone obstructs the common bile duct or the cystic duct. This pain can become constant and can also be referred to just below the shoulder blade. This can be accompanied by a fever, nausea, vomiting, light or clay colored feces, and yellow color of the eyes or skin. There are many different types of diseases of the liver. These can include: hepatitis, too much iron or too much copper deposited in the liver, fatty liver disease and viruses just to skim the surface. Acute pancreatitis can cause upper abdominal pain that radiates to the back and worsens after eating fatty foods. It can be associated with nausea, vomiting, fever and abdominal tenderness and swelling. Chronic pancreatitis has similar symptoms and can be accompanied by weight loss and extremely severe pain.
