Where is the pain, confused

So I think I have Costo, have had pain for over a year now!!

Im confused tho by all the info of where the pain is?

My pain is under right breast, sort of in the first rib there, and it also goes down to lower rib? also radiates to back ribs.

The main pain I get is when showering, if the water hits a certain part of my back I get real bad pain in the rib under my breast?

Are these normal sites for Costo pain?

Also I get short of breath, its like I dont want to take a deep breath incase it hurts.

Dont really know why and what started all this pain, cant remember as its been there so long! tried a Chiropractor and that made it worse, now doc has put me on waiting list for physio

Any help appreciated.

Re: Where is the pain, confused

Costochondritis is soley in the sternum. It is where the ribs attached to the sternum or breast bone.

Your symptoms sounds interesting in that the shower causes you pain. What is a physio? Is that a physical therapist? You do excerises to help the pain?
