    Pulled Muscle? Pain on right side of torso

    I think I pulled a muscle. The pain is on my right side, in the middle of my torso, at the bottom of my rib cage. It's painful to cough, and perform daily activities. I was working out intensely last week and I'm assuming that's what it's from. Few questions I have:

    1) Is this common?

    2) What exercise probably caused this? I did a lot of chest exercises last week, flat bench, flat flyes, incline bench, incline flyes, decline bench

    3) Could you guess the specific muscle I pulled?

    4) How long should I rest before I start lifting again?

    Thanks!

    You should definately have a doctor take a look at it.
    It could be something serious.

    Thanks for the reply. I think I may have made it sounds worse than it is. It does hurt, don't get me wrong, but I'm still able to get around fairly easily. It just hurts when I cough, sneeze, take really really deep breaths, or twist my upper body quickly.

    It sounds like similar symptoms to a hernia or a strain or some sort.
    I would personally get it checked out by a professional just to be safe.
    Good luck!

    Thanks for your reply. I went to the doctor and was diagnosed with Costochondritis. You can read up on it here:

    Sounds like excessive exercise could have been the cause of it. Nothing too serious, but it is pretty painful.
