I have soreness sensativte and bone soreness under breast it also feels weird to touch my skin and it.S not shingles.?

Possibly: Shingles is a recurrence of the chicken pox virus on one particular nerve where it has managed to hide. When it activates, it will follow the course or length of that nerve - where you are describing it, front to back along an almost straight line on one side of body only, right or left. Kinda feels like that prior to skin lesions showing up. Check with your doc. ...Read more

Pain in right side above my breast but lower then my collar bone.  Very sore at times  does not hurt then touch ?

Costochondritis: You may have costochondritis, it is an inflammation of the cartilage that connects your ribs to your collar bone. It could also be chest muscle soreness if you lift weights, do chest exercises, or have a cough. You can try taking ibuprofen to see if it helps but see your doctor if doesn't improve or if you have associated shortness of breath, heart racing, lightheadedness, or feeling tired ...Read more

Is it normal to have a knot under your breast bone? I have a knot right under my breast bone and at times its sore and I have troble breathing because of it.

Not : Not exactly sure what you are referring to as a knot. At the bottom of the breast bone (sternum) there is cartilage that hardens with age. It is called the xiphoid process. I don’t know if what you are describing as a knot is your xiphoid process. Xiphoid syndrome is when that area becomes painful. Does it hurt more after you eat a large meal or if you move in a particular way (such as lifting something or bending over)? Possibly, it hurts when you breath in and out. Sometimes the doctor doesn’t figure out a reason why it is hurting but sometimes it may due to other medical conditions; like problems with your heart or your gallbladder. On the other hand, maybe what you are feeling is a knot and not your xiphoid process. The best way to find out is to see your doctor and be examined. ...Read more

Likely muscular: Hello, if you can really pinpoint almost exactly where the pain is located on your chest (i.e. 2 inches above the breast bone), than it is likely rib pain or some sort of muscular chest wall pain. Do you lift weights or work out? I would rest for a few days, take Tylenol (acetaminophen) or Ibuprofen if it comes back again. It does not sound concerning for heart pain. Hope that helps! ...Read more

Subluxation: Hi ChrisF689 Sounds like you may have a slight separation or subluxation of one of the joints between ribs and sternum..or even more common, where the 'floating' ribs connect to each other along the lower margin. Antiinflammatory, Ice and some gentle manipulation may help. If it continues, or your have any shortness of breath, see your practitioner. ...Read more
