Costochondritis is the commonest cause

Detailed Answer:

Hi.

Please give additional information for me to assist you better:
Since when is the pain present?

Is there tenderness that is a pain on pressure on the lower ribs?
Any swelling or lump?

Any other detailed history, please.

The commonest cause I can think of is costochondritis.
Awaiting for your detailed feedback.

Please continue Aleve pain reliever and rest.
You may please apply any rubefacient liniment locally that gives warmth and painkiller effect.

Hope I have answered your query.
