"To all who have posted or will view this posting, it appears to be a condition called Costochondritis. Costochondritis is an inflammation of a rib or the cartilage connecting a rib to the sternum. It is a common cause of chest pain, which I was recently diagnosed with a few months back.



I found it interesting how you need to use a heat pad (low) instead of icing. You'd think anything inflamed would require ice, but this is not the case. Hope this helps.
