Hello I will be 70 in a,weeks time and have several health problems. A few years ago I was told that I have degeneration in the neck and add spine. I also have arthritis in knees and possibly hips. I am used to pain but admit I have a very low pain threshold. About 4 weeks ago I started suffer pain between shoulders made worse by activity. I put it down to lifting heavy grandson and thought it would get better. It has got worse and because I suffer from anxiety am finding it hard to cope. I have just started some counselling for the anxiety. Today I saw my gp because as well as the back pain which is the worst I have started getting soreness right down the breadwinner and sore breasts. I have to take my bra off to get some relief. Gp examined me and said it is the ribs rubbing on the sternum probably made worse by anxiety. She mentioned costochondritis but did not actually say it was. I gave been given ranitidine as I have as light indigestion and a angina spray in case the chest gets tight just to see if it works although I had heart stress scan earlier this year for angina but the tests came back clear. Any advice would be appreciated. I am anxious that I will not be well enough for my birthday party next weekend. I also sing in a choir and am finding the moves leave me in a lot of pain. Thanks for reading this.
