Hello there,

Well I am sure that you know that this is an inflammation of the cartilage. The pain you may be experiencing because of this condition can hide obvious pain caused by heart conditions. In most of the cases there is no obvious cause for this condition so the only thing your doctor can do is to ease the pain you are feeling and the condition will improve by time.

Most common symptom of this condition is pain which can range from dull pain to the very sharp pain of wall chest. This pain can appear while you are coughing, deep breathing and when you have difficulty with breathing. I hope this was helpful and that you will manage to resolve your problem.
