    Yes, that sounds like costochondritis which is inflammation of the cartilage surrounding the ribs. It can be very painful and you feel like it is difficult to take in a breath. You can try taking an ibuprofen to see if it helps. It could also be a by product of heartburn/reflux pain. Do you have reflux or do you get heartburn?

    hi Claire,

    yes, I'm going thru this now. I found it more painful on my left side breast. I know the paining you are feeling, I too went to my doctor in August because I was worried, my test results all clear nothing to worry About, I started taking vitamin B which helps to relieve the pain.
