HI, thanks for using healthcare magicCostochondritis
can cause severe pain
in the chest that is worse on movement of the torso. This pain can be felt on palpation of the chest.
It is caused by inflammation of the area where the ribs meet the sternum
The pain can last from a few days to weeks in some persons.
It is normally treated with anti inflammatory pain medication but if it is not effective then stronger medication can be used.
I hope this helps
