Re: costochondritis

Sounds like GERD, since it's after you eat. Poor diet, can cause inflammation in that area, and make the costo worse. I've been changing my diet and it has seemed to help.
Green tea, pomergrate juice, and anti-inflammatory foods, and no heavy lifting, should help some.

Re: costochondritis

Maybe eating smaller amounts several times a day would help? I don't get "pain" after eating but do feel pressure under my ribcage. My guess is that maybe as the stomach expands, it pushes other organs to the ribcage?

I get pain with lifting and anything that's not low impact. It really does suck.

Re: costochondritis

I've been living with costo for over 10 years. It was way worse back then on a constant basis. Had the whole run of Gastric tests and also liver, gallbladder checked. Now inbetween flareups it's always a dull pressure feel like someone is pulling on my rib.
I do take magnesium malate and for the costo it''s made no difference. But it does help my stomach out.

Re: costochondritis

No reflux since I quit taking NSAIDs. I do get a bit of IBS tho. From what I understand Costo is an inflammation of the cartilage similar to arthritis. I do get swelling and my doc refers to it as Tietze when swelling occurs. I don't believe it's related to anything else with exception of a possible old rib injury. Which if I did have an old injury I don't recall it happening.

Re: costochondritis

even fizzy mineral water sets my rib pain and chest off i think anything that causes my stomach to bloat must push up against my ribs i really hate it !

Re: costochondritis

I wish there were a cure to costochondritis. It's really gotten in the way of my life. Especially as a 23 year old interested in playing music. Constochondritis sucks. I can't believe there's no cure for it.

Re: costochondritis

Interesting. Well personally ive gotten all sorts of tests, even had an endoscopy, been to the e.r. last year, etc... Only thing that has shown is vitamin d deficiency which I'm talking 50000 IU vitamin d for a weeks as prescribed for that. I guess it's always possible taking the right vitamins or supplements could help over time. I want to try taking magnesium again too.

from all the tests ive gotten to date though there doesnt really seem to be anything that suggests what i have is anything but costochondritis. Ive had for over a year now i think.

I could see going on an anti inflammation diet potentislly helping a lot too. I d k, i guess there is hope for codtochondritis.
