Red face Chest/Rib pain

I have been training for a marathon for the past two weeks and a couple of days ago did an intense ab work out. The next morning I woke up with pain I figured was simply from muscle soreness. But as the day went on the pain got worse. I tried to strech a bit but that made it worse too. I have a very high pain tolerance but this unlike anything I've felt before. The pain runs along the bottom of my ribcage. I'm sensitive to the touch and it hurts when i take deep breaths, cough or sneeze, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

That sounds like muscle pain from over extending yourself to me

Re: Chest/Rib pain

Look up the symptoms for costrochondritis (sorry if the spelling is wrong) Usually when you do a lot of stretching, it causes some inflammation in your rib cage. It is severe pain...i got it from reaching for a box at work. Try putting heat on your chest and taking an anti-inflammatory like motrin or something and see how that works...if not, go to a doctor and have it checked. Does it hurt to push on your breast bone?

Re: Chest/Rib pain

No, it doesn't hurt to push on my breastbone, but it does hurt when I push on my lower ribs. Normally I wouldn't be concerned but this seems like it's a little more than simple muscle soreness. Thank you so much!
