Re: costochondritus and fibro??
the bones of my ribcage are swollen and sometimes feel broken. does not radiate to shoulder, arms or arm pits. just the front and back of my ribs. it is hard to breath, painful to wear anything. hurts to the touch and forget a bra.
i would consider calling the rheumy, tell them a letter is on it's way from your doc and can you schedule your appt ahead of time so when they get the letter you are already all set. then call the lazy doc and tell him/her they are waiting on you, i have an appt. i have done this and it does work. got the doc a bit angry but told him to deal with it, not my responsibility. do your job dude. he is still one of my docs. no longer a slow learner. giggle.
