Musculoskeletal: Hi Sorry to hear that you have been having pain. Likely what your are describing will get better on its own eventually. Rest from physical activity that strains that area will help. Possibly it is related skeletal/cartilage/muscle pain, given that it is related to movement. Would be happy to discuss further through inbox consult if you wish. Hope this helps! Feel better soon

Time to see doctor: Chest pain is a sign that she should talk with her doctor; or go to an E.R. if pain is moderate or worse. In young adults, chest pain is less likely a heart attack. She should not drive (get a ride, or go by ambulance). If it turns out not to be costochondritis, myocarditis, anxiety attack symptoms, or heart attack, the ER will also have checked for problems like a collapsed lung or a pneumonia.
