Re: Costo Flare Up AGAIN

My friend though she had heart muscle problems since she was tired and short of breathe but then read up on costochondritis that she had had 10 years ago. She said she started taking advil or ibruprofen for inflammation and she is feeling so much better. I think caring anything can cause your costochondritis to flare up and become inflamed. I wish you the best. I have carpal tunnel and when I carry something in my hands too long, it becomes to ache.
