I've been having strange sensations in my rib cage over the past couple of weeks, and now it's spread to my abdomen slightly. I can almost feel as if certain spots are vibrating. Every once in a while a rib seems tender and then if i puff my chest or stomach out I can feel it stretching. I have a slight cough (not productive) and my asthma has been acting up on and off (not very badly). I'm not overweight or unhealthy. Sometimes it almost feels like there's a hole in my windpipe somewhere. The doctor listened to my lungs about 2 weeks ago and said they sounded clear. Has anyone heard of anything like this, or have any ideas on what it might be. I'm quite scared. Any help is appreciated.
Thanks for the response BeHappy. The doctor didn't think I needed any tests at the time, but since I've seen him this whole gurgling/stretching sensation has gotten worse. Also noticed that I've had a lot of gas. It's almost like I have a leak in some area, though I doubt it since I'm really not in much pain. Just more like a discomfort. I've tried finding things online to ease my mind but haven't seen anything that matches what I'm dealing with.
Sometimes we need to be more persistant with our doctors. A follow up with your doctor to say this is not getting any better. Is this your primary doc or a specialists you went to ?
Only we know our own bodies and when something is not feeling right we need a doctor to listen. Especially since you say you are scared, be very persistant with this doc. Keep in mind second opinions are sometimes best.
