    Rib , back and chest pain help

    Iíve been to the ER 4 times for chest pain. My heart checks out every time and they send me home. I mention costochondritis and they blow me off. But I think thatís what I have. Pain and pressure on left side or ribs pain in left middle back and pain in the breastbone resulting in shortness of breath . My rheumatologist canít see me until the 13 th. Iím open to suggestions as to how to deal with the pain. .
    Thank you

    Dear kathryn,

    Even if you do have costochondritis, you manage that yourself with overthecounter pain relief meds. It is not at all serious.

    You rest, and can alternately apply a heated or cold compress to the area.

    Mainly it is imperative that you stop fretting and make yourself relax. Drink some hot non caffeinated tea, if that comforts you. Avoid coffee, coke, pepsi or any stimulants.
