Hi wfaf,


It’s possible that you could have costochondritis. This website deals specifically with it:


Perhaps you could pop along there to compare the pain you feel with what they say about costochondritis. I have it, and it can get so bad sometimes you feel as though you are having a heart attack!!


Sending very gentle hugs.
