I apologize for the specificity of this post, but I figure the only way to get any idea of what I'm dealing with is to give all the info I can. Thanks!
I've just turned 20 (male) and I've been experiencing aches and pain, mainly in my chest (sternum area) and mid-back. Other notable places include occasional twinges of pain in abdomen, arms and upper thighs, and under the arch of my feet. There is a soft bump on the junction between my sternum and ribcage that's generally only visible if I flex my chest (the area where the pain is located). The doctor I visited said the soft bump might be a fatty lipoma. Recently a daily headache has developed. I had a head MRI done in September 2007, which was clear.
I have had (within the last month) blood tests, a chest x-ray, an EKG and an abdominal/groin ultrasound. All of which show things as normal. The place I went to didn't scan my prostate with the ultrasound. I've just started a prescription for 800mg Ibuprofin for my chest and back (she considers costochondritis).
I believe a contributing factor might be that I have a mild case of tremors, which usually only affects my fingers, toes, perineum/PC muscle, and something in my inguinal area, but I've recently felt 'twitching' in the arch of my foot, nose (weird sensation, haha) and chest. I would hesitate to say the pain is a result of any tremor, but there're people out there who would know better than me.
I'm sitting about 80% of the day, and I'll admit my posture might not be the best.
I have anxiety related to health, so I'm prone to stress over this stuff.
I'm just looking for any other opinions or suggestions. Thanks a bunch.
