pain when I press on my chest bones

Posts: 174

Hi, I was wondering if anyone has this symptom.The bones right above my chest seem tender in one spot when I push on them. I'm worried that it could be a problem with my esophagus. Can anyone relate? Thank You!

Sounds like costochondritis. I have had it several times before. It's an inflammation r swelling of some type. I had an EKG and chest x-ray. I had crushing chest pain.
