I have been experiencing pain in my left side of my chest for months now I have been back and forth to doctors, I have had 3 ecg that have all came back normal and blood tests all normal I even had paramedics out because I was sure it was a heart attack. Yesterday I went to see a heart specialist that told me the pain is not coming from my heart. After reading about costochondritis I'm sure this is what I'm suffering with its really getting me down now I feel like I'm going mad I dread going to bed at night because it always seems worse at night Thou I do have the pain in the day. What can I do to make it go away

    I'm in the same boat friend, had it for months, just take it easy and use ice packs, as far as I know there's nothing really that's a quick fix unless you get steroid injections which I read don't always work. I have just been taking anti inflams and resting up

    It is a great pity that Conta10 and my reply were deleted. Speaking for myself I certainly was not advertising a solution but stating that the device mentioned was a great deal of help along with the advice attached. However, I have had 3 visits to an osteopath who has definately helped with freeing up the locked rib/spine hinges and I am doing exercises to improve rotation. If you do a search I hope that you will be able to find what the deleted posts were referring to.
