Thanks for writing to us.
Manubrium pain might be due to the inflammation of the cartilage which connects it to sternum. Need to be examined by orthopedician to look for the tender point.
Anti inflammatory usually helps. Sometimes local injection at the tender point relieves the pain and may not recur after that. Thanks.
