pain the sterum above the stomach area

I have had this nagging tenderness and pain to the touch where the ribs and the sternum meets. It has been that way for four days. very painful to the touch when pressed and uncomfortable to bend forward. My stomach sometimes is bloated. What do you think it is? Money is tight to go to doctor.

Re: pain the sterum above the stomach area

I am dealing with that now, along with back pain. I went to urgent care a few weeks ago and thought it was a heart attack! Was severe heartburn/indigestion. I am going for a visit to the gastro doctor next week who will probably be doing an endoscopy just to make sure it's nothing more serious.

Re: pain the sterum above the stomach area

I am not a Dr. - just a girl who has what you are describing - I was told I have Acid Reflex, Nasel Drip, and though a Dr never told me this, I also believe I have the gas issue.
