  • Pain in lower breast/upper rib/sternum area?

    Hello! I downloaded this to ask this question and get some feed back. I have been having an unusual pulsing type pain in my left lower boob/upper rib/sternum area. I have now developed new vein looking marks around the same area and the pain has lasted over 6 months. I went to my OBGYN and had a ultrasound done of my breast and she said there was nothing. Anyone have an ideas what could be going on?

  • I don't know exactly what this would be. I suggest going to a primary care physician. He or she might be able to give you more information than a gynecologist would. I have experienced this kind of pain before more than once in my life and I think it happens if I'm not eating well or if I'm dehydrated or constipated, but I've never seen anything that my skin would indicate as a problem and it was not ongoing such as yours is.

      The ethical vegans don’t eat dairy for that reason. It’s interesting how they view things. I found out recently that some of them will eat eggs and...

      P&C, I'm a fairly quiet person too. Not shy. People mistake that for many things, and misunderstand it all the time. I'm ok with that. I choose to...
