I've been experiencing tightness around my "Xiphoid Process" region causing pain in my Upper Abdomen. I'm on the lighter weight side for my height. I recently had Hernia surgery and just had my Upper Endoscopy. The doctor says everything looks "normal". However, whenever I touch my "Xiphoid Process", it feels like a slight lump and it causes slight pain, and whenever I lie flat on my back, I can feel the Xiphoid Process tilting outward more. So why would it be painful?
I'm wondering if any of you have heard this type of symptom? I'm just wondering what kind of Scan will best reveal if there's abnormality with this particular bone? X-Ray, CT, MRI? I'm hoping the scan will reveal how surrounding muscles or organs are being impacted by the Xiphoid Process.
Any help would be appreciated.
