Re: Is there really nothing to do for costochondritis?
The only thing that seems to help is rest, no lifting or exercising but I hate being sedentary. I've got an elastic wrap with bones that is about 12" wide (a little too wide) that I wear when I'm doing light work that seems to hold the ribs & cartilage in place & helps some. I also thought I was having a heart attack the first time I had this. Sometimes I actually holler when I move the pain is so intense. Good luck!
