Costochondritis & Pleurisy Podcast
Sharp pain in your chest is nothing to sneeze at. But while ‘heart attack’ or ‘heart disease’ may be the first thoughts that come to mind, there are other conditions that can be the culprits. Dr. David Muguku, a family medicine physician on staff at Lake Charles Memorial Hospital, discusses costochondritis—and the resulting pain where your ribs and breastbone join—and pleurisy—and its sharp, fleeting pain made worse by coughing, sneezing, moving and deep breathing.

For more information on costochondritis and pleurisy, or to schedule an appointment with Dr. Muguku, call Family Medicine Specialists at (337) 480-8900 or visit
