Since you have already had this evaluated and they believe it is muscular in origin, you need to treat it like that. Something as simple as the load of books that you carry and how you carry them or any other repetitive activity can inflame a certain area of your chest muscles and regular use of ibuprofen (motrin/advil) is the way to treat this - to reduce the inflammation. You can go to WebMd and type in "costochondritis" and read up on this condition and follow their advice given and over a period of weeks, this should heal up with the help of medication.
