I donot think the costochondritis is related to periods. Periods you get from the uterus. Chest pain you are getting from ribs, how both can be related. There is some confusion in you

My 18 year old granddaughter started feeling bad about 2 weeks ago. She complained of headaches, was sick to her stomach, had no appetite and was having severe chest pains. We took her to the ER and she was diagnosed with Costochondritis and was told to take Ibuprophen. She had an appointment with a Dr. on Monday and related to her that she has been depressed and feels like she is standing still and everything around her is moving like a movie, She said she just feels weird. Dr. started her on 10 Mg of Fluoxetine which she has taken in the past. This morning her face was numb and her whole body felt tingly. She cries and says she feels so bad that she is afraid she is dying. The Dr. just called and took her off the Prozac. Her aunt and gr grandmother died of a brain tumor. Is this something we should be concerned or could she have something seriously wrong with her. She called herself and made an appt. with a counselor. I believe she is suffering from panic disorder. She has an appt. for a gall bladder test for her upset stomach and chest pains. EKG was okay. What could be wrong with her?

I have costochondritis and was prescribed a strong ibuprofen that made me very dizzy and triggered vertigo. it is very painful what can I take that will help the pain. Is it o.k. to rub something like bengay on my chest, and since this is inflammation related will drinking a lot of water also help?

I have been diagnoised with Costochondritis, however, I have been to 3 doctors and they give me different reasons as to why it is not due to stress. The emergency room doctor gave me a paper which states the condition is related to emotional stress. Can this be a reason for costochondritis?

Hello. I am a 26yr old female. I have some sort of condition that no-one seems to be able to diagnose. I have had this for 7 years (since the birth of my child) and it has been getting progressively worse to the point where I can t leave the house. Symptoms include - Palpatations PVC s/PAC s GERD Shortness of breath (as if my lungs are spring loaded) Hot weak feeling in chest, sometimes with a buzzing sensation Severe panic attacks - sometimes random but mostly when leaving the house or having to be around people. Dizziness and fainting Stomach pains (tearing, aching, cramping) Muscle spasms (all over) Back pain Constant nasal drip Trapped nerves in back, shoulders, and ribs Costochondritis General widespread pain Alcohol helps a lot with pain management and panic attacks which could point to a psychosomatic illness? Thank you for your help.

Hi, I have a costochondritis and also sore throat with light dry cough for more than 2 months. Occasionally this causes hoarse voice. I think my throat is sore on the same side as chest pain from costochondritis. Had a lot of anxiety lately. Can my sore throat be caused by costochondritis?

i have been told i have Costochondritis, and now i have been having pain and numbness in both my legs, especially while crossed, and cellulitis as well. I'm taking antibiotics for the cellulitis, but the pain and general weakness and heavy feeling in legs remains.
