Unhappy Costochondritis or something like that...

Has anyone heard of it? I think I have it and would like to hear stories and share symptoms.

Thank you.

Re: Costochondritis or something like that...

I have hadit quite a few times. Its very painfull. I can not take a deep or even normal breath when I have it. It seems to move abit sometime itss in my back sometimes in the front chest area even my shoulder will hurt. I have had to sleep sitting in a recliner a few nights as it hurt so bad to lay down. I used pain meds given to me by the doctor.
Heating pad and a hot bath or shower a few times a day helps. Usually it takes 10 days or more for it to go away. It is very painful even moving hurts when its bad.

Re: Costochondritis or something like that...

I've been recently diagnosed with costochondritis.

I've got constant pain inbetween my ribs but more to the right. It hurts more when i take deep breaths, cough, laugh, sneeze any sudden movement really.

Hope that helps

Love Cheryl xxx
