ongoing costrochondritisI am a 25 year old woman who has been experiencing the symptoms of chostrochonritis for about ten years. Over 20 years ago as a toddler, I had open heart surgury twice in oneyear. According to the doctors I was diagnosed by (I got 4 different opinions), this was the probable cause and that this condition usually fades after a year or so. I am exhausted with the nearly constant pain and medications that go with the pain (I rotate taking ibprofin, napoxin and tylanol as needed). Lately I have not been taking any medication as it generally does not help enough and my tolerance has gone through the roof. I'm wondering if I could have been misdiagnosed or if I am one of the few cases that lasts (much, much) longer than a year.
Chest pains that start (usually) under my left breast (although no chest-cavity area is off -limits). Ranges from dull aching (tolerable) pain to sharp, hot pain that stabs through me.
Stress tends to elevate my symptoms, seeming to make my chest pains more frequent and more painful. Localized heat can sometimes help, generally taking the edge off when combined with stress-reliving breathing and medicine.
Also, I am a rather large chested woman, and most of the pain resides along my underwire lines. I have tried numerous bras and nothing seems to make any difference.
I am at a loss as to what to do, and am now wondering if I face a life of cronic pain.... Does anyone have any insight or advice?
