Costochondritis

I've been having a lot of back pain for the past few weeks, and where my ribs come together belong the breast bone is very tender, as are my lower ribs. My doctor says that I have costochondritis. He says that the pain can wrap around to the back. Does anyone else have this problem?

Re: Costochondritis

I have this too. It hurt to touch the chest and was quite a sharp pain. It came on after my back surgery. I suspect from laying around so much. Doctor told me to take an antiinflammatory for it. I think I took Aleve. that helped immediately. Then I started pool walking and doing some arm exercises in the pool and that helped reduce my pain all over, including the chest. I think muscles get tight. I noticed though my back problem is in the lower back, my whole back was tight until I got into the pool.
