Well, I'm located in the USA in the Pacific Coast and I am in an 18 year old body, which should not have any problems. I'm not scared or frightened, I did not jog, I will admit I am overweight, but I am walking everyday to improve my health. I woke up today at 9:30 and everything was fine except I was exceptionally tired even after 10 hours of sleep, long story short I just woke up at 1:30 p.m after going back down around 10:30, well, I normally feel like crud when I get up anyway, however;

My breathing is shallow, I'm a shallow breather anyway, but I do take deep breathes occasionally, like a pattern. This time the "you need to take in oxygen" signal is really weak or lagging like a bad-internet-connection and my ribcage has been hurting since last night and still is... Also, just about everytime I wake up from heavy sleep, my head hurts on a scale of 1 - 10, an 6 or 8 of pain...I always thought this was sinusitis.

I'm not really worried or anything, I'm just curious and I spent a good hour trying to find an answer on wrongdiagnosis, maybe WebMD would work...

Anyway, I have a theory about the hurting ribcage, you lose heavy amounts of weight over a period of time, your body tends to feel like someone ran over you with a truck, because all your bones are adjusting to a target weight, everything changes.

Well, thank you very much. :D :D :D

Have a good day (or night or what's left)!

PS: Oh, sorry, I forgot, I dunno if this makes a difference, but I'm female.
