What causes inflamed chest muscles?

Answer

Inflamed chest muscles is called Costochondritis. It is a form of chest pain that is directly linked to inflammation of the cartilage and bones in the chest wall (around the chest bone (sternum) and the connecting cartilage of the rib bones. It is usually caused by microtrauma or overuse. Exercise, deep breathing and touching the area can be extremely painful. With rest, heat, anti-inflammatory medication, the symptoms should go away within about a month. But, to rule out any more serious conditions, it's best to go see a doctor when you have any kind of chest pains.
