    are you on statins for cholesteral? If yes look up side effects. Any medications at all google side effects. See a neurologist! Best of luck.

    Has anyone done an MRI on your back, hip and neck? If not you should demand it because a standard X-ray does not show problems with soft tissue like discs or muscle among other things. It also can miss broken bones. The pain in your hands is probably related to your neck and jaw pain. I also wonder if you really had costocondrtis. I have had several intercostal muscle strains that a lot of people thought it was costocondrtis, including me. Finally my pain management doctor told me what my actual problem was. It feels like I have a knife stuck in my ribs and every time I move the "knife" I get a terrible sharp pain. Unfortunately there is no cure for it just treating the pain which is the same for costocondrtis. You could try a nerve block. You will have to see a pain management doctor to have that done. I had it done once and it did not relieve my pain. the reason is because it's only a guess as to which nerve is causing the pain. I wish you luck on getting this pain under control. as hard as it might be, try to not let your pain dampen your excitement over the impending birth of your child.
