    I'm sorry for your pain! I too have had costor for ten months. soft ice packs help me alot, I also take a medicine called Neurontin which helps. A TENS unit is very helpful too. Have you gone to a rheumatologist? The good news is its not life threatening. Its just painful. I also take motrin when it hurts, and  I am going for a cortisone injection in a few weeks. Hang in there. You are not alone!!!!!

      I too was worried about all the horrible stuff at first, but if you had a tumor in your chest it would show up on x ray or ct scan. I know this is scary and really stinks!!!! But you dr can prescribe meds to help. also foods high in inflammatory properties help as well as advil and soft ice packs.
