I have bad health anxiety, and a month ago I really set it off after finding out my friends mom had breast cancer, the entire month I spent stressing about my health and her own. I started to notice a sharp pain in my left ribs that would radiate throughout depending on how stressed out I was. I've calmed down a lot since then but I still have sharp pain in this one section on the middle left of my rib cage. I felt it and I feel two little smooth and round lumps on my ribs. Of course I immediately thought I had cancer. But logically I think it could be a cyst or a knot.... is this possible and should I be concerned?
I am 19 and due to my anxiety I have been sleeping a lot and eating less, Ive been skipping the gym a lot (but I recently started back up again) and I've had to carry this really heavy project back and forth from school.
Could any of the above have caused my problem? Thanks for the input.
