Ok help me out. I have received a blunt force trauma to the sternum, back in December. Never went to the doctor. Back the middle of febuary I bounced a barbell of my sternum during bench press. I then got sick and was coughing forcefully hard. I started tp have chest pains. Went to the Dr. thinking it was my heart. He said no blunt force trauma. Two weeks later I went back still hurting and worring it was still my heart. Saw a different Dr. she said no to the heart problems. She ran an EKG three different ways (not sure which ways). She says I am as normal as normal gets. This has been 2 weeks ago and I am still felling bad. Chest pains still, more in the muscles than in the middle. Pain in my left arm but never at the same time as my chest hurting. Never radiating down the arm, no shortness of breath. I have actually lowered my blood pressure some, over the last 2 weeks. Still in a acceptable range. So should i go back again to the Dr.? She said I might have fractured my sternum and seperated the ribs from it. You can pch on the sternum and on the edge and cause pain. Am I worrying over nothing, or should I go back?
