Agony!!--is cross training dangerous?
Glad I came across this thread. I was out running in the wee hours last night and put a bit of a pace on to finish.
As soon as I stopped I got a sharp pain on the left side of my chest. Thought I was done for! Except it only hurt when I breathed in hard or tried to cough.. other than that I felt fine - no shortness of breath or dizziness.
Took my pulse and BP when I got home. Both fine. Bent over to take my trainers off and got the pain again.
Thought it had to be muscular, but this thread has confirmed it. I could actually narrow it down to a pain between two ribs. Was scary as hell for a minute or two though!
I think having not done anything for years (and stopping smoking a year ago) this extra effort is straining musckes I didn't even know I had.
Have sprained another intercostal muscle couple days ago doing track sprint intervals. Did google search and came across this thread that I started 9 years ago! Well that original spain was only painful for a few days, hope the latest one is equally unproblematic. Pain is inbetween lower right ribs and have had sharp stabbing pains that have nearly put me on the deck!
