Re: CONFUSED,about COSTO-CHRONDRISTIS

This is the definitoin of costochrondristis from the Mayo Clinic's website:

`Costochondritis is an inflammation of the cartilage that connects a rib to the breastbone (sternum). It causes sharp pain in the costosternal joint — where your ribs and breastbone are joined by rubbery cartilage. Pain caused by costochondritis may mimic that of a heart attack or other heart conditions.

Your doctor might refer to costochondritis by other names, including chest wall pain, costosternal syndrome and costosternal chondrodynia. When the pain of costochondritis is accompanied by swelling, it's referred to as Tietze syndrome.

Most cases of costochondritis have no apparent cause. In these cases, treatment focuses on easing your pain while you wait for costochondritis to resolve on its own.`

***

My doctor does refer to it as chest wall pain and gives me injections of local anasethetic in my chest and it goes away. I find that now that it has been brought under control, only exertion brings it on - like walking too far too many days in a row - i.e., the arm swinging action aggravates it.

I hope this has been helpful for you.

Re: CONFUSED,about COSTO-CHRONDRISTIS

Hello there, may I suggest that you go to the top of this page and in the search engine on the left hand side type in Costochondritis? There is so much information given in this section by members of HB under specific medical forums.

Hope this is helpful to you. Please take care.
