hi Im 14 years old and just below my rib cage in the middle of my chest it feels tender and horrible when I touch it.Also it is really uncomfortable and always there I have to put my hand over it just because its so uncomfortable its not sore I only felt a stabbing pain once when I woke up. Please tell me what it is please I am really scared its something to do with the heart. Also I do not eat fruit at all I drink absolutely huge amounts of milk its all I drink, I do not smoke or drink and do not eat many sweets or chocolate and I get plenty exercise. Please tell me if its serious ill be so grateful ive had it for about 3 or 4 years or maybe more. And please give it to me in a way that I understand I dont get all those medical terms please ill be forever grateful Sad Sad Sad Sad
