So right below where the ribs meet there is a soft area. When I put any pressure there it hurts terribly. When I take a deep breath it hurts around my heart area. It's really scary. Even when I just sit normally it's uncomfortable.

I remember having this a year ago while I was on Biaxin too. I think it went away eventually so this is why I'm not too worried, but it is scary.

Could this just be some inflammation due to herxing? Or a dangerous side effect of Biaxin?

Last year I remember a cardiologist telling me it's just Costochondritis.

I have this symptom a lot, a few months back it scared me enough to check myself into the ER. Had a full cardiac check up and everything was normal.

I can't tell you what causes it, but my guess is a herx if it came back after an extended period
