I've had this pain in my chest the last couple of weeks. Feels like it's in the sternum; it's directly in the middle of the chest between the two pec muscles. The only thing I've done different that I think could have caused it is that I have shoveled a hell of a lot of snow lately.
The weird thing is if I put my hands out in front of me palm-to-palm and squeeze my pecs there isn't much pain at all. But other movements hurt badly; for example, if I put my hands on the rails going down the stairs to support my weight, it hurts. It's gotten a little bit better; at first it hurt to even take a big breath.
Anyone have any ideas on what's going on here?
