In brief: Costochondritis?

It's obviously difficult to ascertain if this is costochondritis or not based on that description, as this could theoretically be indicative of heart disease, reflux or even a problem with your stomach, spleen or large intestines.
But if it were costochondritis, simple anti-inflammatory medications would help. But it would be more wise to have a local doctor evaluate you to be sure.
