Question Does this pain sound like costo?

For several weeks, I've been having pain in the sternum that radiates outward in both directions (moreso on the right, though). It's generally a dull, diffuse pain, but it gets quite sharp when I press on the areas. It's not affected by how I move at all.

I had a horrible upper respiratory infection in June, but it never really went into my chest.

Can having poor posture and slumping while at the computer every day play a part?

Re: Does this pain sound like costo?

Poor posture and slumping at the computer could have everything to do with costochondritis, if that is what you have. If you had a respiratory infection you were probably coughing a lot and this could have caused muscular pain as well.

However, any pain in the chest should be looked in to, as possibly cardiac in origin.
