Diagnosed with a mild form of costochondritis, getting worse chest pain. Cure?

Hello Dr. In the past year I was diagnosed with a mild form of costochondritis . However, throughout this year my chest pain has gotten worse. When I inhale or exhale the pain is present. Usually when I wake up from sleep I can feel the pain in both breasts and my muscles seem very stiff. Furthermore, I was sent to the emergency room a few months back due to severe back and stomach pain . The doctors did not know what was wrong with me however pointed out that my urine looked suspicious. Also, I have had constipation for two months now. When I have a bowel movement and after the bowel movements, my stomach aches and I get severe cramps. I have been bloating . I have not changed my diet. I usually feel like throwing up. If you have an idea of what is wrong, please let me know. I appreciate your time. Sincerely, Daya

Costochondritis can have a waxing and waning course so you need to take your medicines sos whenever the pain increases. Secondly what I feel is that as your urine had some infection then you get it checked again and the culture will show us whatever its growing.
For stool and stomach pains it again looks to me like an infection due to some parasite. It will be better to start tablet ofloxacin and ornidazole combination for about 5 days and see a physician if not cured
