Costochondritis – Junction Inflammation
COSTOCHONDRITIS AND FIBROMYALGIA Costochondritis can result from several medical conditions. Fibromyalgia is one example. When you feel a stabbing pain in the ribs, it is not always an indication of an injury. When it first happens, you may be worried that it's heart disease, or even - if it's severe enough - a heart attack. Instead, you may be suffering from costochondritis, which is an irritation of the cartilage that connects the ribs and the chest plate or sternum.
