Hello,Welcome to Just Answer. My name is***** and I will be helping you today.
Do you mean in the center of each breast, or in the bone between the two breasts?
Thanks. The problem may be an inflammation in the cartilage that connects the rib(s) to the sternum (breastbone), a condition called costochondritis. An anti-inflammatory like Aleve, which you are already taking, can help with that.
It can also be gastric reflux. In that case, Aleve may just aggravate the condition. You can try ranitidine (Zantac) acid reducer over the counter. It should provide relief in a couple of hours. You should try to avoid greasy or spicy foods, citrus, chocolate, anything alcoholic or carbonated until you feel better.
Please let me know what additional questions you might have about this.
