Hey guys, new to this board..

Hey everyone.. I'm 21 years old a female with what I believe to be is costochondritis (I'm going to see a doctor when my health insurance gets reinstated), anyways. I have a stabbing pain in the middle of my sternum, it's on and off but flares up worse when I stress/bend down/lift heavy things. It's extremely annoying for my age trying to live life I can't even shave my own legs or groom my private areas without stabbing chest pain. (I have a tummy and reaching down requires strain and stretching), I've learned to avoid this type of stuff but every once in a while I can't, or I feel the need to groom myself.. It really sucks I feel like the only way to not feel pain is to avoid most things and lay in bed. I also have TMJ but that's another story.. is there any hope? I'll have about a week of relief sometimes (no flares, mild pain) and then i'll do something almost unavoidable and it makes everything worse for weeks.. HELPP.. I can't take it anymore.
