Since August I have been training in jiu jitsu and mixed martial arts. Right when I started I experienced a pain in the area that is marked in the photo below, however the pain subsided after a few weeks. whenever there is any sort of pressure on the affected area my back hurts very badly directly under my right scapula. I also have a problem reaching behind myself with my right arm or upward and behind myself. There is also a good deal of pain when I punch wih my left am. Any time that I increase pressure to my ribcage around the affected area I feel pain. ie; leaning my head backwards and to my right side, compressing my ribcage, pushing my elbow towards my ribcage. coughing or sneezing ( clinching of arms and chest). Because of this pain/ pressure relationship I have been taking Ibuprofin and other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs which have helped to an extent. I have been hit in the chest also during my training however there is no defining moment that has seemed capable of providing such injury. I stretch every time I work out and I have been working out about 6 days a week since October.
Is there any info that someone can give me on this? I'm really hoping to continue my training soon and sparring is near impossible with this injury

  • I meant to say punch with my right arm in the 6th line. It currently says "when I punch with my left am".
