Costochondritis, Indigestions, or Both?
Last year I was diagnosed with costochondritis caused by some awkward heavy lifting I did. Every once in a while if I lift something heavy wrong, the costochondritis will flare up for a few days.
Yesturday I started to have a slight pressure feeling in the bottom of my sternum. It wasn't painful, but more of an annoyance. It would come and go. Today it moved around and sometimes I can feel it on the left side of my sternum, right where I can feel the costochondritis. It is not the sharp, stabbing pains I have had in the past, which made me think that it was just indigestion. The only thing is that I can recreate the feeling by pressing on the area, much like with costochondritis.
I don't know what it could be. I have been taking antacids for the past 24 hours and it is possible that I should be taking a pain reliever. I just don't know. Anyone have any ideas?
