    Just antibiotics. I was already on steroids because I'd had an asthma attack two days before, and I had one at the hospital :laugh: Out of the 4 times I've called 111 for myself, twice they've sent an ambulance. They tried to send one a third time but I refused lol and the other time I ended up with an emergency GP at midnight. They do really err on the side of caution, but they have to I guess. That sounds like a good plan
    I don't know why you put a laughing face, that sounds dreadful

    I hope it's nothing...

    Tbh I've had a similar thing (without the stabbing pains) before. It went away on it's own...

    Actually I think I made a thread about it then too -_-

    This isn't as bad as that was, but it feels a tiny bit similar.

    Oh I remembered that one time the muscle caught between my ribs and that hurt for a couple of days - could be that?

    Damn gurl... You've had trouble with your ribcage!

    I don't know if it is that. I just hope it's not cancerous....

    You don't know the half of it :lol: but that's why I can honestly tell you that it could literally be anything. Times Ive thought I'm fine and its been serious and times Ive thought it was serious and I'm fine are about the same as one another.

    Haha it was a bit funny. Had little issue with asthma for 19 years, and the first two attacks I have are within the space of a few days. So typical

    Chest infections have been a thing recently. There's been a lot of colds and stuff going around so I wouldn't be surprised. Try to distract yourself if can, because worrying about it can only make things worse. If it is still a problem tomorrow, your doctor will be able to sort you out. These things sometimes just happen for no apparent reason so you might wake up in the morning with it gone. I hope you feel better soon :hugs:

    Trust me, I'm a doctor.
    This seems like a safe and sensible thing to say (sarcasm).

    Costochondritis did seem the most likely explanation.

    Admittedly a quick Google search.

    It is a pretty common condition. Seemed to fit.

    The second comment was a joke and she knows me well enough to know this.

    Stop making out I endangered somebody.

    Tbh it is the explanation I would most want to go with and the one that makes sense, since I've had it before and it went away on it's own.

    I feel no pain today, I just have a bit of a heavy (almost anxious) feeling in my chest even though I know this isn't caused by anxiety. As I said I'll see how today and tomorrow go and if I need to go to a doctor then I will make an appointment.
