I get sharp stabbing pains right in the middle of my rib cage, where the V shape comes together. 4-6 inches above my belly button. However, symptoms appear at random. I have not been able to link anything to it, I ruled out caffeine and sitting for too long, as this occurred when I was drinking only kool aid and water (for 2 years, no pop), and has occurred when I was exercising.
My doctor thinks this sharp pain is simply HEARTBURN, and gave me Nexium to treat it. It occurs even when I am on Nexium.
I learned in CPR there is a sharp bone there and not to put pressure on it or it would pierce the lungs. I wonder if the weight of my large boobs is causing the pain.
The only way to treat is is the remedies for Acid Reflux. Milk, Tums, calcium, zyrtec, pepcid ac, and nexium.
