I'm so sorry. I had it a few years ago. I got if from yoga of all things! I had to (literally) roll out bed in the morning because I couldn't contract the muscles in my abs/chest without searing pain. Sneezing brought me to tears.

I had to abandon my normal workouts until I recovered, about 5 weeks or so. The only thing I could really do was pedal along on a stationary bike.

Hope you feel better soon!

I feel so bad for you. I had this once and could not lie down without being in EXTREME pain. I had to sleep in the recliner for a month. It was awful! I got mine from working in a plant nursery. Good part was it got me out of any heavy lifting for awhile.

The good news is that not being able to work out your arms won't affect your ability to lose fat there. Fat loss is a total body process; working out one area won't make you lose fat there. That's because your body draws its energy from the blood stream, not the surrounding fat stores.

I gave myself costochodritus as a teenager when I was teaching myself how to surf. I kept swallowing sea water and coughing it up and managed to rip those muscles. It felt like having a heart attack--MEGA pain, and I say that as someone who doesn't usually even slow down for pain.

It should go away after a few days--you might need a return trip to the doctor and more rest.

Dances: salsa (standard/LA), casino, rueda de casino, cumbia Colombiana, bachata, mambo, cha-cha-chá, merengue, reggaetón.

Currently learning: Mexican cumbia, danzón, Cuban rumba

Dances to Learn in the future: flamenco, tango Argentino, samba, belly dancing, bhangra, ballroom rumba

Just when I get motivated.... excited to be able to return to exercising after having my son.... I have a terrible pain that won't go away and its debilitating at times. So 3 months of not knowing what is going on I finally got an answer.... Costochondritus. I could have it for a long time... and it seriously hampers my workout... can't do much strength training with my arms... which is frustrating because that's my number two problem area.... and yoga. I am very limited in my yoga. Grrr....
Trying to stay positive.... it could be much worse.... I thought it was a pulmonary embolism or heart issues so I'm glad it's not that. It's just so frustrating.
