Costachondritis help please

Postby Trish140363 » Tue Feb 10, 2015 10:40 pm

I'm sat her in the most excruciating pain with Costachondritis and am wondering if there is anything else I can do to help it. I don't wanna take any more pills as I'm already on cocodamol gabapentin and oramorph at night time. I do sometimes use extra power deep heat cream but it tends to burn when I rub a very small bit into both ribs and a hot water bottle sometimes helps but not today ... any advice please???

Xx

I have this atm and it's awful, isn't it? Apart from all the meds and heat to the area, the only other thing I sometimes do is wear one of the shaper type underwears. The tighter the better around the ribs seems to help me, but I suspect it's a 'works for some and not for others' type thing, like so many ways of managing FM. Might be worth a try though...

I know you've said you don't really want to take any additional meds, but it might be worth considering doing so, for a little while at least. The usual treatment for Costochondritis involves taking anti~inflammatories/NSAIDS such as ibuprofen or something stronger if needed to help ease/reduce the inflammation of the cartilage in and around the sternum/ribcage area.

I agree with Flup sometimes if things dont ease then it becomes necessary to resort to some meds :yikes: :yikes: have you tried a TENS machine

I have rib pain but it on the sides of my ribs not the sternum, it makes it hard to take a deep breath or cough. Does this sound like costocondritis or not? Thanks

Costochondritis is inflammation of rib cage muscles, so can occur anywhere on the ribs x
