So for the past few months Iʻve been having some pain on the left side of my sternum. It happened the day after doing weighted dips. At first I thought it was just normal muscle soreness but after a week, I knew something was wrong. Itʻs definitely an overuse injury because I went from training three days a week to six days without proper programing (Iʻm dumb because Iʻm 25). The pain increases and decreases depending on what I do. I CAN NOT deadlift, overhead press, kettle bell swing or hang from a bar. I can do push ups and bench press with no pain which really confuses me.
Sounds like a situation you definitely need to see a doctor to find out what is going on.
The situation isn’t improving much with what you are doing so there may be more going on.
Its not a new situation either.
Just in case anyone runs into this same problem I think I can help. I did a 5 day juice cleanse. All organic fresh squeezed juice. I did little to no physical activity.
Hey Nakoa, I am going through the same exact issue that you were. How are you feeling now, is the issue still resolved?
If your problem is actually costochondritis, when I had it, I was able to fix it using fish oil and flax seeds (anti inflammatory) I’ve been to doctors and took anti inflammatory drugs prescribed to me with no success
