Thank you for your query at DoctorSpring.com
Regards from our team. May I know your age, occupation, smoking history, past medical history, your fitness level too?
Your complaints don't suggest any specific pattern of disease. Seems more likely to be musculoskeletal pain.
However I would be happy if I could rule out any small things by a chest x ray .
Suggest you test your vitamin d level also.. I would strongly recommend a PPI ( for acidity) and vitamin e tab for a period of 7 - 14 days.

Thank you very much for the reply. I am 28 years old and I am a Machinist. As for medical history I was found to have high blood pressure and GERD. Both conditions are being treated with Medication that I have been taking for a long time. Lisinipril 40mg and Bystolic 5mg for the blood pressure and Omeprazole for my GERD. I had a Endoscopy done about 6 months ago and was found to have a hiatal Hernea (mild) but they gave me a ct scan of my abdomen and found no trace of a hernia. The reason for the CT Scam was because Ive been feeling pressure in my sternum. Right where the ribs meet. I am an ex smoker, I quit in July. My fitness level is pretty none existent.
As I previously suggested, consider a prokinetic agent like levosulpride also in addition to omeprazole. Gerd can cause vague symptoms like this. Kindly get back to me after using the medicines for 7 days.
