In brief: Let me help

Costochondritis is a benign inflammation of the costal cartilage, which is a length of cartilage which connects each rib, except the eleventh and twelfth, to the sternum. It causes pain in the chest that can be reproduced by pressing on the affected area between the ribs.
This pain can be quite excruciating, especially after rigorous exercise. While it can be extremely painful, could resovle by it.
