Thank you for your help everyone.
Moist heat definitly helps. I have used the steam sauna a few times at the Gym. No rib or chest pain or any other pain for a few hours. Unfortunately, since I am totaly heat intolerant I walk out of the Sauna staggering with total brain fog after just 5 minutes and have to jump into the pool to bring my core temperature down fast. Then I sit there like a big lump all day with all the energy sucked out of me.
Yet another symptom pointing at Hypothalmic disregulation.
I actualy think it would be good to stretch the rib muscles, but its really easy to overstretch. It helps on me, until I do to much of it. And then even each time I have done to much of it, like twice a day for a week until finaly I am feeling like I am laying on boils whichever side I lay on, once it heals back up in a couple of days, I get one or two days with no costo symptoms. The muscles between the ribs probably need to be heated up and relaxed before stretching.
Costo started up on me when I lost a routine I used to be able to do. I had a jacuzzi and a good massage chair, and I would do the jacuzzi for 10 minutes, then the chair, then back to the jacuzzi for another 10 minutes and then off to bed. I am moving back up with my daughter and son in law in the spring and helping them get a house of their own. First thing going in is either a jacuzzi or a big whirlpool tub and another one of those chairs. Probably a big tub since its cheaper and you can take Epson salt baths.
I used to get that symptom of the whole chest and ribs and even the collarbone feeling like they were in a vice and I suffocateing. One night it was so bad I had to take 4 mgs of Klonopin and sit in my chair and make myself relax and I could finaly breath.
By the way. Off topic, but I am into my second week of D-Ribose, I am floating in CoQ10 and taking allot of Acetyl L Carnitine and L Carnitine and I am not getting nearly the level of disorientation or brain fog or feel as drug sensitive and I now tend to sleep 6 to 8 hours in straight shots, whereas I was waking up 3 or 4 times a night for no apparent reason. I am hoping that reaches the point I feel like I have some excercise tolerance
Thanks again, and I hope you all feel better too.
