My anxiety is so terrible this week. I have Costcocondritis when I have these anxiety flares. I have a very tender spot to touch between my breasts in the right side. Sometime it sends pain through my breast. Is that normal? It feels like it's in my nipple but I believe it's the ribs causing it??
Expert:  Dr. David replied 10 months ago.
sorry about your costochondritis.NSAIDs like ibuprofen or aleve can help decrease inflammation in your ribs and decrease painyou can also use cold or hot compresses on the area to help decrease pain.yes, you can have pain in your breast from costochondritis. you don't need to keep worrying about your sonthere is no petechiae there.let me know if you have other questions.if done for now, please leave positive rating of 3-5 stars so I can get credit for helping you todaywe only get credit for helping clients after positive feedbackyou can always reach me directly with "a question for Dr. David" in the medicine or oncology categories if you have other questionshere is my website if you need to reach me:http://www.justanswer.com/medical/expert-dr-david/Thanks for using JustAnswers.com

Thank you.In my breast, if I lay down and feel my breast tissue. No pain or soreness in my breast tissue. No lumps.The tender spot is the ribs between my breast. Mainly one side. And I'm just hoping the pain I get through my breast and nipple is from that?
Is that possible?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 10 months ago.
yes, I told you alreadyit is your rib pain causing the pain in your breast.

Ok. I did google it and I read people saying that it could be platelet disorder. And I'm concerned.I'm not tired or bruising any where else. I do bruise easily but they heal within a day or two and go away.How would I know if this was leukemia?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 10 months ago.
you need to stop googling this stuff.it doesn't given you reliable informationyou are seeking out the more serious and scary things to worry about.a simple CBC complete blood count would show normal WBC white blood cell counts which means you don't have leukemia.
Customer: replied 10 months ago.
Ok. And would I have other symptoms?I know scratching can cause petechia but since it happened from scratching does that mean I'm easily bruising? I scratched both sides and only one side has this. I'm assuming I would have more wide spread vessel breaking if this was a bad issue?
Expert:  Dr. David replied 10 months ago.
you would have other symptoms from leukemia.you don't have leukemia.your bruising is not a sign of blood disorder.
