I have researched it and it sounds a lot like costochondritis, mild pain when I take a deep breath in along the rib/ breast bone... the only thing that’s changed is I added in houttuynia 4 days ago... could this be due to that? Should I persevere with it?

It’s a bearable pain, and not constant but it’s there

Yes. That pain is likely from bartonella. Back off on the houtty.

Thanks both, I was initially so worried I thought my organs underneath might be swelling and putting pressure on my ribs!

I’m only on 5 drops of houttuynia will go back to 1 or 2
