It started with a ripping sensation even a crunch, while getting up from bed. then the pain went away for a short time. now, 3 months later, I have pain in my sternum, kind of on and off but every day. If I press on it, it hurts and even tingles some, almost an itch. It can radiate to my pecs. Now, my lower back aches and there is a tightness under lower ribcage. There has also been heavieness is my eyes. I am not tired but my eyes are. I do need reading glasses now but haven't bought them. .
Maybe my question was lost. It all started about 3 months ago. While getting up from laying on my back, my chest made a ripping and crunching sound. It felt like I pulled all the muscles in my chest. It seemed to have healed until about 2wks ago when I started having pains in my sternum and pecs. If I push on my sternum area, at the top, middle and below, I have pain then after a few seconds it seems to itch and tingle a bit. As of today, my lower back hurts. I don't smoke, I'm not jaundice, and have not been vomiting. My eyes have been heavy but i'm not tired. I'm 48 and now need reading glasses and I'm nearsighted but haven't bought glasses or addressed that yet, so that may be contributing to why my eyes are heavy. Also, I have been under a lot of stress and my be experience anxiety. Could thid be costcochondritis?
