I know when I was getting a massaged, I nearly jumped off the table when any of my chest muscles were touched.
Magnesium has helped me.

Good to see you!
Sometimes the ribs get twisted out of place somewhat.. which can cuase that shooting pain and super tenderness.
When I get it.. got it now as a matter of fact.. AGAIN...
I don't seem to have done much of anything to bring it on. In other words I don't lift heavy objects... fall or do something that you would think is a reason for it to happen.
I go to the chiropractor to get it fixed.
Another situation that could cause that pain would be the lymph nodes.. and you have lots of them along the sternum... are full. Sometimes folks with Bartonella can experience that problem... but other infections would probably cause it too.
I can't say either of these things are the cause... but they might be something to consider.
