Pain in sides

Hey all,
Lately I've been having pains in my side, not sure what it is. I have Tietze syindrome so that may be the cause but that usually occurs closer to my sternum. Feels like its in the ribs just below my left pec. Anyone have any idea what that might be? Usually happens at night but lately Ive been feeling it during my WOD's.

Re: Pain in sides

Well, your costal cartilages do extend out to the sides... not just at the sternum. I would be 99% sure that it's part your Tietze syndrome.

Check out some images of costal cartilages (google) and see if it corresponds to the approximate area of your pain.
