Reply Byrdmann says: November 15, 2014 at 10:44 am I have had this sense 2008. The pain has not stop. I was put on pain medication and steroids witch just dulled the pain. I am a fitness instructor and the pain is no joke. I really think mine is chronic. I really wish the come up with something fast for a cure. The funny thing is it was just until about 7 months ago. I really had a name for it. I thought i was crazy. Cause the Dr. would just sent me on my way. I will be going to do a follow up real soon. Byrdmann Reply FAST N BULBOUS says: November 16, 2014 at 7:58 am I dont know why they go on about certain things triggering attacks, this condition is with you CONSTANTLY, i have had this since 1996. i got it very unfairly; my drunk friend tripped over a table leg and thought that i tripped him up when i didn't so he stomped my chest as hard as he could, after that something wasn't right, i may have made it worse by doing press-ups , but now it's chronic and my life has been revolved around it since. it's not so much a pain as an extremely irritating feeling, like this weird fizzy elastic band in your ribs that always wants to be manipulated or cracked or this annoying creature with it's legs clamped between each ribcage draining your life energy, it drives you crazy; i compare it like the feeling of wearing socks in bed, you know u just wanna rip those socks off for relief but with dritis there is no relief as the ribcage is like a prison disallowing you access to the irritation, your whole life revolved around manipulating your chest trying to crack it for 1 second of relief till the cycle immediately continues Reply B. says: January 30, 2015 at 4:05 pm What is clear is that shit will never go away. 5 months in, still can't walk for more than 3 minutes without being short of breath and can't use my arms at all or else it gets worst. It's like being 80 years old at 23 years old, so much fun. I took corticosteroids and it worked on the moment but it's only temporary. Injection must be the same, just temporary shit that does not work long term.

If I stop the pain comes back, I've had this problem for years. Tumeric works.

Reply Randy Bautista says: July 13, 2015 at 4:26 pm ive had it for 5 years. it has not gotten better and im on Vicodin every day. i feel like im a zombie plus regular cortisone shots. I've had about 15 shots in the past 4 and a half years.the pain wont go away and its not manageable. i feel asleep driving one night and hit the back of a truck thankfully i didnt die but i cant deal with the pain any more dont know what to do. Reply lind95 says: September 1, 2015 at 8:43 pm I don't understand why most videos and online information about this condition only makes reference to the pain only being in the sternum and chest area, Although I do have some pain in those areas. It hurts more on the side of my ribs all away around to my back and most days is worst than others. I started having this awful constant pain when I fell twice on my right side and it hasn't stop hurting since 2011. Before this I was diagnosed awhile back with Fibromyalgia and osteoarthritis. I can manage most other arthritic pain but this rib pain is the worst. It won't let me sleep a good 7 hours. I wake up every morning feeling like I've been beat with a jack hammer. It makes me feel like I'm dying a slow painful death. It's draining me of my energy and I'm fed up with it. Reply Steve NZ Physio says: October 22, 2015 at 9:25 am Gawsh. I've just read all the awful comments. I'm a New Zealand physio. I just don't think costochondritis is mysterious or hard to fix. You have to ask WHY it's painful on the front ends of the ribs. The reason is usually that the joints at the other ends of the ribs where they attach to your back are jammed frozen. Freeing them up takes the excessive load off the rib hinges at the front of the chest, so the irritation can settle down. This is really logical. I've explained it on YouTube video 'How to fix (most) costochondritis and Tietze's syndrome chest pain.' Good luck, Steve August. Reply lymarie1974 says: January 19, 2016 at 9:26 pm i have suffered with fibromyalgia for over 20 yrs. and two weeks ago i began have pain in my chest i was sure i was having a heart attack. come to find out i have joints in my ribs and the fibro has spread to them. i could do nothing but cry some and now just more pain to endure. i am relieved i know what this new pain is but this disease has the power to take my joy at times.
