She still is having chest pain, on Friday she a had a phase 3 bone scan. After the test Friday afternoon she started running low grade fever, lower left hand side pain, and throwing up,and still is. She had been complaining the week before about pain when urinating and frequently, but that has stopped, I know sometimes pain travel could these all be related? Thank you

Her symptoms are mostly due to steroid therapy. There is no role of steroid therapy in costochondritis. Majority of these lesions are viral in etiology usually coxsackiei viruses. Hence it is a self remitting condition. Mild oral and local pain killers will be adequate.
