Anyone here have any experience with costochondritis (inflammation of the sternum)? I began Starting Strength back in January and was progressing with it until I began to have some pain on the right side of my sternum. I figured I tweak something in my chest so I shut it down for several weeks. Once it subsided I got back into my routine and it came back immediately.
I had my doctor look at it and basically diagnosed it by process of elimination, no cardiac issues, no stress fracture, just inflammation. From what I'm reading online, it looks like I may have to shut it down (chest) for 5 months or so. Sucks, I hope this is something that rest can take care of and it isn't a recurring issue.
