Re: Chest pain! Heart or something else?

You might have Costrocondritis. Not sure on the spelling. This is an inflammation of the cartigage connecting the ribs to the breast bone. I am in constant pain because of it. Sometimes slight, sometimes pain killers don't work, it hurts so much. I had the heart tests done also. They were normal. Anti Inflammitory drugs is the only thing that works if that is what you have.
