      Sometimes I m thinking if I have an enlarged spleen but i ve been doing mris and all seemed fine. Does anyone have the reffered pain in their throat like when they swallow?

      If it hurts like sharp pain to the touch to press into your ribcage or sternum then you have Costochondritis aka Tietze. Yes it is hard to breathe when it flares up due to heavy or improper lifting.

      I disagree. We know our bodies and if something the doctor is saying doesn’t sit well with you trust your instincts. Doctors are trained to think horses when they hear hoof beats but sometimes they should think zebras.

          @Cason do you have any trouble breathing? Or pain in your ribs and sternum?

      If they did ekg then you have to trust them. If u r still concern request a stress Test. But we have to trust doctor.
