Hello, I was wondering if anyone could tell me what this could be:
Back in March I had a month and a half long anxiety attack (which has never happened before). In the middle of this episode I developed a sharp pain in my middle left rib area just below the breast. It soon spread near my sternum and around my left ribs until I finally calmed down, now the pain seems to stay where it first developed.
I felt around and noticed a pea sized lump very deep under the skin, it’s smoothe round and a little movable but pretty firm. I noticed another around the same area, they don’t hurt but the area around it sometimes will.
I’ve gone to two doctors and asked if they could feel it just to reassure me but none of them would, the first doctor told me that “lumps are just lumps” and the second said to keep an eye on it.... both of which caused a lot of panic in me.
I am 19 and fit. During my anxiety attack I stopped going to the gym and eating regular, I have scoliosis and my left ribs actuallystick out a bit more and my posture wasn’t too great during this time, I’ve also been feeling the lump a lot out of worry and it hasn’t seem to grown at all (I think?).
If anyone can tell me what it could be I’d appretate it. I have horrible anxiety when it comes to these things and nothing seems to calm me down.
