Re: Cosochondritis caused by anxiety/stress?

Hi there -- some folks recover from costo quickly, while for others, the pain persists. Pain and mood go hand-in-hand, so the more anxious you are, the more your chest and everything else will hurt. I have found that the two things that help me are Lidoderm patches and kinesio tape. I went to physical therapy and asked for the tape. It relieved almost three years of pain in 48 hours. I've since started taping at home.
