| | Re: Constant Chest Pain
I have had the same problems and after numerous tests (ekgs, chest x-ray, stress echo, etc.) I was told I have costochondritis. It is a very severe case and scares me to death. My chest constantly aches and every once in a while I get sharp pains when I move a certain way. I have tried taking anti-inflammatorys and muscle relaxers and neither have helped much. This condition can last 3 months to a year from what I have been told or even become chronic. If your chest hurts when you press on it (especially between the ribs) then this is a pretty sure sign that you have this condition. You may want to have a Dr. confirm but I would look into this being a cause.
