    Tietze  or costo . yes absolutely. I had fever for a couple of months. It's a viral thing whereas costo is more injur based. Also I was very tired, a black curtain would just come down over my eyes and a I would sleep for hours. Print some stuff of Internet for your doctor . It says about fever for costochondritis also.

      Thx, nice to hear that I'm not alone. Have not been able to find info about costo and fever. That's why I started his discussion. Hoping that more ppl join this discussion and share their  stories. Yes ss, the tiredness and the feeling of being unwell is awful.

      Hi, getting pretty worried now. Cannot find any info about costo and fever. Nobody else has answered on this. Maybe my fever is something else. I feel even dizzy and in the background the costo feeling/ache in my rib cage, arms, shoulder blades. Is there any possibility you could give me some more closer info about the costo fever. I know you cannot directly refer to other sites, but any further info would be very much appreciated. Thx in advance.
