Red face Menopause and costochondritis

Ok this may be way out there... But I'm just wondering if starting thru menopause can cause costoc to flair up? Here's why, I've had costoc for many years, and it was just a nuisance but now that I'm starting menopause it has come back with a vengeance!!! Just wondering if anyone has heard of it

Re: Menopause and costochondritis

Hi Scruffy 60, how are you now? Is it any better?

I too am perimeopausal and facing a severe flareup of costochondritis.

I would really like to hear from some posters who posted about menopause related costochondritis on this forum some years ago. However those threads are locked so I cannot post a message on those.

I really need to hear that after menopause this pain will go away. I don't know about the swellings- they look too big to just vanish...

Re: Menopause and costochondritis

I still deal with it, but it has calmed down a lot!! So I guess there's hope��but i still wear a non wire loose bra, cause I noticed a lot more pain when I don't.

Re: Menopause and costochondritis

Thanks Scruffy60. I also have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome Hypermobility Type. I guess the severity might be related to that too. Wearing any kind of bra is getting difficult for me. And lying down as well. I wonder if the swellings are cartilage lumps that will never go away!

Re: Menopause and costochondritis

I too have costo and am going thru meno ... started about 3 1/2 yrs ago, but just recently diagnosed.

I don't work anymore because of it, have shortness of breath with it at times.

Mine is like a boa around my upper torso at times, tight, some burning, moves ... front of chest, to sides, to back.

Praying it subsides soon ... it is awful and I want to be able to get out and live again!
