Hi and thanks for the query,
It could be interesting if you could do a chest X ray. This could be very important in actually making a clinical appreciation of this condition. Infections, inflammation, asthma are possible causes of this pain. The evolution of these symptoms, pain , tightness of the chest, aggravating and alleviating symptoms could be very important consideration. A physical exam by your physician to ascertain any tenderness on the ribs or junction between the ribs and sternum could suggest costochondritis.
I suggest you see your pulmonologist for a proper evaluation and management.
Thanks and best regards,
Luchuo, MD.
