Rib/chest pain while/after running?

November 28, 2006 5:41pm CST
Is this normal. I've been excersizing and it's not like this is the first year of running or anything. I've been running in gym all the time ya know? But for the past year in a half I always get this horrible rib pain right below my chest and it always slows me down because it hurts so much. It usually stops after 20minutes of not running. What's wrong with me? I'm drinking enough water.

Maybe your body just needs a rest from working out. How often do you work out? Do you lift weights as well? You could have pulled a muscle somewhere that could be causing this pain. You may want to see a doctor about it if it continues.
