While running I experienced a sharp pain in my sternum. It hurts more when ever I apply pressure to it or poke it. What is this?

Costochondritis: Sharp pain in the sternal area (breastbone) during activity or after activity is almost always costochondritis (inflammation around bone-cartilage interface) and it is often difficult to treat going away by itself after several days to weeks. At 22 years old, the risk of this being coronary heart disease is very very low. Most would recommend a doctor visit to fully check out the heart. ...Read more

Probabely normal: You have been evaluated by your doctor or doctors. The sternal pain is only in fierst 10 minutes of slow running.And then it goes away, and no pain after 60 minutes. It does not sound like due to heart problem at your age.

Why do I sometimes feel pain when im breathing especially when I am running. Can feel the pain on the chest area when inhaling. Why?

Chest wall: If pain is aggravated during the moment of breathing deeply, and is not so bad during a breathing pause, it is either coming from your chest wall (ribs, muscles, pleural lining of lungs) or the airways in the lungs themselves (usually happens when breathing cold air). But if pain is constant throughout the breathing cycle and is aggravated by exercise, it could be heart-related. ...Read more

Of course, chest pain unrelated to the fever must be checked by a doctor to be sure it is not heart pain (which would be bad). See a doctor. ...Read more
