Chest pain is one of the scariest symptoms a person can have because the first thing we usually think of is a heart attack. Of course, any new chest pain should be considered a medical emergency and checked out right away. But once a heart problem has been ruled out, one of the possibilities your doctor may consider is costochondritis. Costochondritis ((kos-toe-KHON-dri-tis) is an inflammation of the cartilage that connects a rib to the breastbone (sternum). It is one of the most common cause of musculoskeletal chest pain. Symptoms: The two main symptoms of costochondritis are pain and tenderness in the chest wall, specifically where the ribs attach to the breastbone.
Pain – The pain of costochondritis is usually described as sharp and/or stabbing, but may also be dull, burning or gnawing. Often the pain gets worse when coughing or taking a deep breath. There may also be some difficulty breathing. The location of the pain can be on either...

Well I guess my problem is that I have constant non-stopping headaches. I've had them for a while now but these past few weeks, they've been really bad. Sometimes, when i get up too fast during one of those headaches (which frankly is all of the time now) i get really dizzy and my vision gets spotty but only for a matter of seconds. Also lately, i've been feeling tired all the time even though i sleep early and at an healthy hour. And also, sometimes when i move my head, it feels like my brain is moving inside and it hurts a lot. These headaches sometimes wake me up at night and other times keep me from sleeping. I've been to a doctor and had an MRI scan but i'm still waiting for the results please help because i'm really worried. Thank you, Farida!
