Pain: Pain that's reproducible on inspiration and palpation of the affected area of pain is typically suggestive of costochondritis, Your pain and symptoms sound like they may possibly be of muskuloskeletal origin?. However, It would be a good idea to visit your doctor and get a cardiac workup to rule out any more serious underlying cause.
