Sounds like: costochondritis (an inflammation of the cartilages joining the ribs in front to the breastbone ) Applysing heat to that area plus the use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications (eg Ibuprofen) may help..HOWEVER ANY kind of chest pain needs an in person visit to your PCP for acurate Diagnosis and Treatment!
