It's possibly what I have - Costochondritis (Tietze's syndrome). It's inflammation of the cartilage that connects the inner end of each rib with the breastbone (sternum). I'm on about my fourth attack in a few years and this one is stubborn! Initially it was very sore and preventing me from breathing properly. My doctor put me on pain killers to help me breath better cos she said shallow breathing due to the pain from this can cause a lung infection. It is now very mild and barely noticable and it's going on about 3 months I've had the latest episode. Also feels like something is attached to it or pulling on it like u describe (dunno what that is). Hope whatever it is u get better soon
