Re: Conditions easy to mix with costochondritis?

Hi, so glad to read some one else has the pain in there jaw with this. That is the part that convinced me it was a heart attack, the pain is unbearable at times. I hope you get some relief soon.

Re: Conditions easy to mix with costochondritis?

Babydoll, my rheumy will not prescribe Mobic. He put it in a class with vioxx and the others that got pulled off the market for causing heart attacks. I had tried mobic for foot pain thru my foot dr and noticed it helped the ribs. That script was only good for a weeks worth to get the foot inflammation down.

About all that's been offered are steroid shots, cortizone in the rib cage. I can't stand the thought of that, so I just ride it out.

My rheummy always puts me on prednisone for 10 days when it acts up. Only a small dose though 10 mg a day.
