Over the past several months I've had a pain in my chest, centered on my sternum but it flares out to my sides sometimes. Now I have a daily pain on my inner arms (the part of the upper arm that faces the body) and armpits, and sometimes in the backs of my knees. My doc says I have a bounding pulse, and I've taken 800mg Ibuprofin in the past for the pain due to an earlier assumption that it was costochondritis or something similar. I have had a chest X-ray, an ECG (or is it an EKG?) and both show up normal.
I have a bump on my sternum that has been diagnosed as a sebaceous cyst. I had an ultrasound on it and it's been said to have liquids, therefore a cyst. It worries me though, because I have chest pain around the area where the cyst is. Sometimes I'll wake up and I have no pain, and things are great for a couple hours, then the pain will start again. Other days it'll start earlier.
At this point I'd like to say I have a very persistent anxiety for my health/life, and my diet usually consists of oatmeal, orange juice, cereal and PB+J sandwiches, with the occasional fast food meal. I feel as if I've lost muscle mass in that area as well, but I'm hoping that's due to malnutrition rather than something necrotic or something.
Anyways, if you need more information let me know. I'm constantly stressed over the possibilities and at this point I'd rather find out what it is even if it's unfavorable.
Thanks so much.
