I have had costochondritis many times and usually in the winter months or after exercising a lot - well I did yoga the other day and some other stuff and now my sternum is hurting again bad. right below my xiphoid process and the left of it is super painful to touch. ugh
has anyone else had this? makes me nervous cause it's my chest area. my upper back has been hurting a lot too lately. I swear. makes me so mad.
just made an apt with my gastro for next week because I want to make sure it's not a hernia or something. he told me the only test that is conclusive for stuff is an endoscopy. I really don't want to do that or pay for it. ugh he said a barium swallow isn't that detailed. I do know I need to quit pressing on it - cause it's making it sorer.
not sure why I have all of these musculoskeletal issues all the time.
