Does this sound like costochondritis?

I have had an upper left back pain for 5-6 weeks and i saw an osteopath yesterday and she said my left rib/s were locked and all my left side felt tight etc. OMG the pain today is worse and i could hardly lift my left arm this morning and the place where it has been hurting has pained/throbbed and sometimes a burning feeling all day. She did click the left side of my back/ribs. It's also hurting at the top of my ribs above my breast when i breath today. Is this likely to be with the treatment yesterday and will it settle down in a few days? Anyone else have/had this?
I also haven't been well for 15yrs and been told m.e/cfs and tested weak positive this year for Lyme and private bloods revealed low CD57 which indicates a chronic infection.

Could be but you would need to be diagnosed by a doctor. I have ribs that like to float around that cause havoc on the rest of my body. Muscles get tight migraines start it's a pain. It burns so bad. Usually it's mechanical cause I go to the chiropractor and it's all better. But since I keep sitting at a desk hunched over typing all day and bad posture it doesn't last long. I need to start working out slowly cause when I did I was way less in pain.
