Looks to be costochondritis

Detailed Answer:
Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Noted the history and understood the concerns.
With the history you have noted this looks more like costochondritis.
Please give additional information for me to assist you better:
Any relation to stress and/or anxiety?
Any typical position that increases the pain/tenderness?
Any symptoms related to gastrointestinal system?
Any other history?
