Hon, you need to see your doctor. At 220 lbs and you're only 15 that's just not healthy. At that weight you are at risk for Heart Disease and Diabetes. So I'm not surprised that you are having these symptoms. I'm sorry that you're scared, but this fear should get you to your doctor, pronto. It's also possible that you have a condition called Chostocondritis. If you push on your chest or anywhere that is painful and the pressure increases with pain then it may be just that and Chostocondritis isn't fatal nor serious. With this you just take an antiinflammatory medication like Advil. But like I said please see your doctor and let him examine and diagnose what's going on with your body.

I ve been having pain in my rib and down my right side for about 2 months now. I went to the doctor and he did an x-ray and it showed nothing. He also said my urine and oxygen levels were normal. My rib is very tender to touch, but doesn t hurt when I move, breath, cough, sneeze, etc. It s a dull pain except for today...it s hurting a little more, but I went to the doctor just yesterday and I think it s just maybe sore from his pushing and examining. The doctor was kind of stumped as to what it could be since the x ray showed nothing. He told me to take 3 ibuprofen 3x a day for 10 days. If it isn t better than come back and he isn t sure what he will do except maybe a scan of some kind. Any ideas what this could be? I haven t had any falls or accidents to injury my rib.

My husband's heart is beating loudly and seems to be beating irregularly. I took his blood pressure and it was normal. His heart rate was 102bpm. He also has an urge to cough periodically. He's had these episodes happen before and the cough has helped at times. Do we need to be concerned? His father died from heart disease and started having an irregular heart beat when he was 35.
