Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you are wondering if pain in the neck and shoulder in a costochondritis patient anything serious . Well there can be many reasons for symptoms you mention in query like cervical spondylosis , tendinitis or angina . I would suggest you to consult cardiologist without any delay . Doctor may order ECG , TMT , complete blood profile and check vitals . Doctor may prescribe isosorbide nitrate , beta blockers , diuretics and aspirin along with sedatives . Doctor may also refer you to orthopedic surgeon for muscle bone or shoulder joint problem and costochondritis , who may prescribe antiseizure and anti depressants along with anti inflammatory . For now take proper rest and do not exert your body .

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
