Re: Can it be cured completely?
I have it too, it started last summer, right after getting remarried, nice way to spend a honeymoon, thankfully my husband has really great insurance. It started out of the blue, I wasn't able to breath, I felt like I was drowning and like I was having a heart attack. I went to the emergency room numerous times and was told my pulse ox and my bp were fine. I tried going to a pulmonologist, an allergist, my internist who sent me finally to a physologist, she diagnosed me with costocondrities, and started giving me epidural injections into my sternum. They hurt like HELL. After a few times with the shots, strong meds and wearing medicine patches it went away, but not completely. The breathing was still a problem, I started taking prozac for the breathing for anxiety and it worked although to this day, I still have the breathing issues. Recently, I having pains, which I thought was a gall bladder problem, so I had a sonogram done and it was nothing. Then I went to my chiropracter who helped me and massaged the area, telling me it is my ribs and reminding me that was I was a college student he treated me for this when my rib popped out and then back it. I got that from lifting a heavy disabled child when I was doing an internship, I was only in my late teens. Seems like that's where this stems from and I wish it would go away for good. I dont think anything really cures it, it just has to run its course.
