Does Costochondritis Not Go Away?
In July of 2007 I was diagnosed with costochondritis caused my some awkward heavy lifting I had been doing for weeks. The doctor gave me 5 days of prednisone and it seemed to pretty much clear it up.
Ever since that time, though, I have noticed that I had been experiencing some of the same symptoms, just not that severe. I will get dull, sharp pains in one spot on the left side of my sternum, above my left breast, and to the left of my left breast. It only lasts a few seconds and comes and goes for a few minutes.
Is it possible for costochondritis to not clear up fully?
