Sternum Pain! WTH??

Wasn't sure what forum to post this under so I thought I'd post it here.

I've been having on and off again pain in my sternum now for over a year. I've been to the doctor, had X-rays, no one seems to know what it is.

Some days I have no pain at all, other days I wake up with the pain. It hurts more when I make a "hugging" type movement. Also, if I push my shoulder blades back it hurts a bit between them too.

It's mostly on the left side of my sternum.

Also, if I sneeze, sometimes it hurts REALLY BAD. Unless I push on my sternum while I sneeze. Then I can feel a "pop" and it doesn't hurt at all!!!

I had that and was diagnosed with Costochondritis. I apply pennsaid cream for the inflammation and it works very well.
