User :   I have been having a sharp shooting pain right below my breastbone in the center. It has been going on for 5 days. I was on an antibotic and called my dr and she said she didn't know, just stop taking medicine, so I did and the pain is worse today. I have tried muscle relaxers and advil, nothing helped. I have had my back popped several times. The pain last for about 10 seconds and comes and goes through out the entire day..Today my neck also has pains, not as bad but some and is sore and tight feeling. When the pain at my breast bone happens it also make my back and chest hurt and tighten during that period. Today it seems to be worse when I am standing then any thing else. The pain is pretty severe when it comes on.
