Welcome to Health care Magic
Costo chondritis is an inflammation of the cartilage.
It is not due to infection.
Your flu like symptoms are not related to this.
Both are coexistent conditions.
Your flu like symptoms may be due to an actual viral infection.
You can try some paracetamol or ibuprofen (to be taken after food) if you are not already on anti inflammatory treatment.
Take care
Wishing a speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
