Re: costochondritis

hi linda,
no. it is at this time believed it is caused by overuse of the upper body over time or an injury. it is also associated with athletes, considered an "over use" injury.
it is often found in people who have fibro. from what i read that is our connecting factor.
hope this helps you.
