I am getting pain in the middle of my chest when I put pressure on it such as while sleeping when I suddenly wake up or turn around. Why?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Costochondritis is the most common cause of sternum pain. It occurs when the cartilage between the sternum and ribs becomes inflamed and irritated. Try the following methods.
1. Ice pack to your chest. 2. You can take non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, like Ibuprofen to reduce pain and inflammation. Limit your movement and avoid any heavy lifting. If still pain persists, then go for investigation.
