Hello there...., looks like you have developed costochondritis.... Costochondritis usually goes away on its own, although it might last for several weeks or longer. Treatment focuses on pain relief..... . Gentle stretching exercises for the chest muscles may be helpful.... Try placing hot compresses or a heating pad on the painful area several times a day. Keep the heat on a low setting. Ice also might be helpful....Rest. Avoid activities that make your pain worse...Kindly consult Orthopedician....
