im a 19 year old female with spina bifida...im only 4 ft 10 inches tall and i weigh 164 pounds...i recently started working out regularly and dieting regularly and ive been doing this for about 2 weeks now...the pain started about 4 or 5 days ago...it is very minimal and isnt really pain..it is, but its more of an annoyance than anything..its starting to worry me because i don't know what it could be..the pain is located above my left breast and only happens when i move a certain way, and only lasts for about 3 seconds...not sure what it could be...ive been told by friends that it could be from working out...my muscles all over my whole body could have gotten so weak that the working out might be whats causing it...any help is greatly appreciated...thank you!!

It does sound like a muscle strain that may have resulted from your working out. If the pain intensifies, or develops only during exercise to be relieved by rest (heart pain) or if you develop any new symptoms then please consult your physician at once. Otherwise, a pain killer and/or muscle relaxanted coupled with some rest should do the job.
