i suffer with what i think is costochondritis, it started around 4 years ago when my son was young he used to lift himself up and use my chest/sternum it caused it to be really sore and tender and never really improved as he always did it. his older now and obviously no longer does it however my full chest has been left sore to touch as well as aches all over and pain. even breathing in deeply is sore from both shoulders across my full chest! even my back gets sore and mainly my left shoulder...i experience what i think is rib popping and clicking sounds. all this also makes my anxiety worse and i straight away think its my heart! i suffer heart palpitations which doesnt help the matter. both my arms have become weak as in if i say fold washing or do dishes my arms ache really fast and it becomes difficult to finish. i experience a dull ache across my chest and sometimes back alot of the time which is similar to trapped wind. ive been to see my GP but all he said is it sounds like ive damaged my sternum but its all my chest thats sore to touch!! does this sound like costochondritis?
im so scared its my heart.
