Coming and Going pain

Hi, so, to start off, my name is Melody, I am 19 and take anti-anxiety meds every day, per scribed by my psychiatrist due to anxiety attacks where I feel like I can’t breathe and extreme hypochondria that interferes with my everyday life.
In the last, I’d say, two months, maybe, I’ve been having this coming and going pain, almost throbbing pain, I’d say, right in the bone below my left breast, which, I think, is either the bottom of the breast bone or the upper rib, if that makes sense.

I hadn’t had that pain in the last three weeks, but this week I started having them again.
I mentioned that to our family physician and also to a friend of my mom’s who is a licensed paramedic, and they both said that there could be a 100 reasons for that, but as long as it isn’t a lasting condition (like, all the time), but coming and going every once in a while, there probably isn’t any reason to worry.
Also, need I to mention that I took blood tests and there was no abnormality. (Knock on wood)
Needless to say after my intro, that I am very terrified, after I googled that and it said stuff about lung tumors that have spread, or spleen diseases.
Would appreciate any help.

Hello, Melody. Thank you for your message.

Were you examined by this physician as well? If not, and you are still having this pain or it's getting worse, it doesn't seem out of the question to be checked. If nothing else, for your peace of mind, as you are worried. That said, I would try not to stress too much about it.
