Hi kerryandjoanne.

Ccostochondritis or Tietze's syndrome is a condition that often mimic a heart attack. But it can be diagnose by touching and pressing the 4th left rib. As a naturopath, my recommendations regarding non-drug treatment are:
•     Calm, it is treatable
•     2 liters of the plain water
•     Ginger, turmeric, fish oil, gelatin, onion
•     Topically menthol
•     Acupuncture
•     Nutritional supplementation: MSM, quercetin/bromelaine, vitamins B-12, B-1, C, D

The best way is to work with a knowledgeable practitioner in your area.
I wish you would get well pretty soon.
