I have had a severe pain it started out in the center of my sternum a week and a half ago. It started to ease up now it is stronger and has moved to under neath the right breast aroung the breast bone or rib and I don't want to go to the hospital.

It kinda feels like mastitus but I am 43 and have had a hysterectomy last march. It hurts to breathe or move and I have never experienced this before

It is not normal to have persistent chest pain, If you touch your chest (under your right breast) do you feel pain? Does it hurt when you take a deep breath? Are you short of breath? You need to be seen and evaluated by your physician. A physical exam including listening to your lungs, blood tests and diagnostic imaging such as an x-ray or CT scan can help determine the cause of your symptoms and give you a diagnosis.
