Hi
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
What you have is probably costochondritis, which causes pain and tenderness at points where your ribs attach to your breastbone.  The inflammation around the joint area gives sharp pain on taking a breath. This can also cause tenderness on pressing the area which pains. An orthopedic doctor can diagnose this for you. Generally there is no cause. However it can be due to infection, blow, injury, or fibromyalgia. It usually goes away on its own. Otherwise it can be treated with muscle relaxants, and non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs. Wear good support bras as this will also help. If all this does not help, consult a doctor.
Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!

Hi - thank you very much for the respond.  I've read about the costochondritis condition but it doesn't say anywhere that a muscle goes on top of your ribs. This only happen when I do a wrong move (normally down ward & side way at the same tim) and when I don't have a shirt on I can see the muscle go on top of my ribs - there's a big oblong bump that's painfull and it will last just a few second until I can get if off the ribs.
