Re: ive had costochondritis for 3 months now how long can i expect the condition to l
i have had costo for many years now, it flares when i do something like sweeping a floor or using my chest muscles. i find that even wearing a new bra can set it off. There are many things that will set this off and start the pain, you have to make sure you are not doing something over and over that is making the pain stay with you. so rest is the best thing and then you can clear it somewhat and watch for the movements that set you off. Driving is something that aggravates, also so lifting and ironing, of course vacuuming the floors anything that is heavy on that upper area.
I hope this is helpful.
