Hi Tracy

I know how you feel !

I was diagnosed with Bornholms Disease last May (1999). I have had reoccurrences ever since, mainly characterised with constant pain around the lower ribs, with the skin feeling hot to the touch.

I visited my Doctor many times, and also a consultant at the hospital. After trying many anti-inflammatory (?) drugs (none of which gave any relief), my Doctor put me on a drug called Mobic (Meloxicam). This has certainly helped with the pain, although I do sometimes still get reoccurrences.

Mobic is apparently quite an expensive drug, so you may have a difficult job getting a prescription for it !

I hope that this can bring you some relief.

Let me know how you go.....

Regards

Emma
