Does this sound like Costochondritis?

Currently my doctor is trying to rule out things. I think he has narrowedit down to possible tiny blood clot, fibromyalgia or Costochondritis. I am allergie to CT scan dye, so he may do an alternative test but really wants the CT scan w/ contrast.

I have pain around my rib cage, it actually is tender to touch, some days worse than others, even putting on deorderant is sensitive. I also have pain under my breasts, almost like a band. Sometimes it feels like I have severe reflux and just plain bloated.

From what I have read it doesn't sound like Costochondritis 100%. I also sometimes get numb fingers in my left hand. ( no I don't have a heart problem)

Does any of this sound like Costochondritis?

Re: Does this sound like Costochondritis?

Your symptoms sound pretty much like mind minus the numb fingers
