    Chest Pain/ Pop near Sternum

    My chest has had this stiff feeling for a while now and sometimes pops like a you would pop a finger. It happens right near my sternum and now its affecting when i workout, since I can no longer lift chest now im pretty frustrated.

    Has anybody experienced this before? It doesnt always happen around lifting, sometimes I will wake up and it will pop or other weird times.

    Any guidance would help alot!

    I think I'm going in for an Xray this week.

    Get a CAT scan done, not a x-ray.

    Sounds like you might have a sternoclavicular injury. I'm recovering from one right now.
    Bodybuilding is 60% training and 50% diet. Yes that adds up to 110%, because that's what you should be giving it. Change the inside, and the physique will follow.

    I have the same thing JB, I've had mine for 2 years now.
    I tried to have VA take a look at it but they're pretty worthless, let me know what you find

    BTW, I just read through 7 pages worth of a thread on another forum with people who had the same problem. No one had a solution.
    The best answers I seen were to have proper postur and possibley get some shots in the sternum.
    I'm going to call VA again

    Is it painful? Mine is. Felt like a heart attack but tests confirmed that I have a healthy one in there. If it's painful, it's called 'costochondritis'. A few days after the pain attack, I could crack my sternum joints like how I crack my fingers - just like yours. It's closely related to a condition named fibromyalgia.

    Apparently its a mild subclinical thyroid hormone indifficiency problem. Run through all the hypothyroid symptoms and see if they ring any bell.

    Are you on T3?

    Where is the pain located?

    If it's up near the sternoclavicular articulation it may be something entirely different than a the rib-sternum articulations.

    Usually rib-sternum are usually something like costchondritis/tietze syndrome like described above or related to something like pectus excavatum.

    Could also be like angina pectoris if it's below the sternum.

    I'd go to a doc and get it checked out but what kind of doc depends on where the pain is located. Marked pic would be good.
