Question: It feels like there is a rock in middle of breast bone

 247angel247 - Fri Aug 29, 2008 5:52 pm

It seems like there is something right in the middle under my breast bone. I can not bend over it hurts or turn side to side. I have severe feet pain on the bottom of my feet and in the palms of my hand so bad that some times I can not walk or use my hands. The ball in my chest is causing me to wheeze and sometimes I can not breath well. What could this be?

User avatar Hi 247angel247,
Have you had any recent unintentional weight loss, fever, or any other symptoms? Have you had an evaluation by a physician or any diagnostic studies for example at the very least a chest xray? If you have not had an evaluation or diagnostic studies I would certainly encourage you to do so. Best wishes.
