Awe, Kara, so sorry you've been dx'd with Costochrondritis.
If you have fibro it's kinda linked with fibro and it hurts like
heck can make ya feel like your having a heart attack as it hurts
so much, I get this from time to time too.
1. Pain meds won't help much for it.
2. try getting a moist/heat pad, gently fold it in half,
plug it in, turn it on and press it to your chest, this will help
3. I know it's hard to be told this, but this can come on with emotions,
so you have to try to keep as calm as possible and try to medatite(spelled off)
and get relaxed as best as you can...
Sure hope this helps you out, hope your feeling better soon, till
then lots of soft hugz......
