hi, I am 60 and a keen yoga person and swimmer but got struck down by Costochondritis in late Oct. I had all the heart tests etc .....having read all the posts on this page it is reassuring to see that I am not alone...but I was hoping for some advice. Has anyone tried doing any gentle swimming or yoga with their Costo. Would it help.? I take NAproxen 2x a day and Paracetomel every 4/6 hrs. I may be lucky and it will go away......if not I need to learn to live with it....advice???
