Can a chonditritus cause shortness of breath? Feel not really pain but pressure in upper middle chest. Ekg fine. Holter monitor fine. Blood test fine.

Yes, in a way. Costochondritis is an inflammation of the cartilage that attaches the ribs and to the breastbone. The ribs are used in the breathing process and move every time you breath.
