I fell heavily on my chest and within a few days there was a strange sensation under my rib cage. It went. The next day it returned. My doctor hasn't a clue. It feels like a tight belt which tightens more after I eat. It's with me all of the time. There is no pain just tightness. I didn't have an x-ray. It is similar to the multiple sclerosis (MS) hug but without the MS.

My 7 year old was hit with a baseball and has a ring around the center of her chest.

I was pushed down in a fight. I could have been hit with a blunt object or pushed into a hard object that caused the chest injury.
