In brief: Costochondritis?

Rib bones don't come all the way to breast bone.
Last few inches are more elastic cartilage so your chest can rise w/ breath & twist when you do. Where cartilage meets rib or breast bone, is a joint that gets inflamed & painful under right circumstances, like too much coughing, twisting, heavy lifting, etc. Can last up to 8 weeks, responds to ibuprofen. See md if worsening or persisting.
