Felt sharp pain in chest on pulling body towards legs, subsided on standing and rubbing the sternum. Any ideas?
I went to stretch before my workout today. I had my legs spread apart and I bent down. Since I am fairly flexible I could place my hands on the floor and reach for my an lea pulling my body back towards my legs. As I did this I felt a very sharp pain in my chest . Almost like an organ or something flipped over and was pressing in the center of my chest. I stood up and began to rub by my sternum. The pain went away. What could that be? This is the second time it has happened. Thank you
The pain couyld be because of straining and overstretching of some muscle fibre or connective tissue. You may apply some local pain killer ointments and be care ful in future while stretching yourself.
