Hello
This can be the joints in the ribs.
It can be the joints in the spine you feel in your chest.
In order to tell, you need an exam by a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist.
This is the doctor that can do a structural exam.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
Please use reply to expert if you have further questions. When you are ready, please click a positive rating [hopefully excellent]. If you forgot something, come back. I am here daily.
