Kelsie, you answered my question in your post, I usually get very sore tender areas on the lower ribs. A few years ago I had terrible pain in the sternum area that came and went, it literally took my breath away. Should have went to the ER but I didn't.
I have not been formally diagnosed but everything I am reading on here sounds like what happens to me. Kelsie, I do not have any suggestions to offer other than heat which seems to help me.
