    yeah. mine have got slightly better over time but im aware of the constant pumping. its worse when im swollen.

    at first it scared me but now i compare it to banging your knee or somewhere equally common. it'll throb like that's where the heart is but it's usually not harmful.

    HI SHELLEY, yes costochondritis can make you feel like you are having a heart attack with the palpitations and spasms. I have had it for 15 months and had all the test including x-rays and bloodwork. I do see a chiropractor once a month for an adjustment plus an adjustment on my sternum which seems to help. I take Liquid advil two in the morning

    and two before bedtime. It will get better and it does help to talk about it with others. Good luck. KATHY

    Did I mention earlier that I sometimes use a heating pad and hold it to my chest? If you get no relief with that you might try cold pack anything to make the pain go away. Also there are some good exercises on YouTube just type in Cosco pain exercises and they will help. Enjoy your day
