pain in the upper middle section of rib cage

i went to the doctor and have complained about this pain really does not say much, it seems to get worse if stressed out it is not a squeezing sention but it hurts mor like the bones themselves if i press on the bones it hurts.  wondering what this is when i went back to the doctor the pain was gone but then came back again, worried it could be my heart.

I have the same pain in the senter of my chest it is not a squeesing fealing eather and it does hurt when I push on my ribs. I had lots of tests done for my hart and stomach and the doctor said its becouse of the anxiety. The pain can last for hours or just a few minuts. And when I went to the ER for the pain it went away wen I went to the doctor the pain goes away. They say its becouse I feal safe at the DR or the hospital and that makes me relax and that couses the pain to go away. I hope that helps your worry.ed13

I'm not sure if pushing would make it worse but I've had similar pains and it was because when under stress I would breathe really shallow or take in or gulp air and it would give me gas type pains.
