Could exercising have triggered costochondritis?

I just did my workout and ran an additional 15 minutes on the treadmill totalling 45 minutes at an average pace of 5.0 mph and when I got home and sat down my heart felt like it was spasming or fluttering in my chest. I am a 29 year old female who was recently diagnosed with costochondritis but ever since I started running and excercising three weeks ago I have no longer felt that pain. Could this be related or could it be something else?

Hi There

I understand your concern and would like to tell you costochondritis may happen from increased activity involving the arms. It improves without any medication.

Young females generally don't get any heart problems until unless you have any cardiac family history. Enjoy your daily routine.

I wish you Good Health
