Is there any way to prevent precordial catch syndrome ?

Hi i am an 18 year old male with no heart or lung problems but i think i might have precordial catch syndrome. There s a very sharp pain on my left side, where my heart is, and the pain intensifies when i inhale to a certain point. I know that on average its supposed to only last for a couple of minutes, but mine has been lasting for days now, and i also know that there really isnt any cure, but i want to know how to get rid of it without any pain. This has been happening to me for years, i think ever since i was 11 or 12 years old, but it isn t very frequent, and is there any way to prevent this?

From your history it suggests that you are having Costo chondritis.
As you said that your heart and lungs are normal but get it confirmed by your physician and if he says ok,then you forget.
You have got Cardio neurosis.
If heart is normal then do not worry,take some analgesic tablet,local analgesic cream application.You will be alright.
